Bridging the gap between the online and broadcast worlds, the “NPR Radio” by Livio is the first internet radio with an exclusive menu dedicated to NPR stations and programs.

— Quickly store and access their favorite NPR stations with a convenient “my NPR” button on the front of the device.
— Access a comprehensive list of more than 16,000 validated Internet radio stations from around the world through the Reciva platform in addition the NPR stations and content.
— In mere minutes, through a wireless of Ethernet connection, search by genre, location or keyword, and find NPR content and other world programming for free.
“There is such acclaim and prestige associated with the NPR brand,” said Greg Kim, Livio’s sales and marketing manager. “We are honored to be partnering with such a notable influence in American culture and are thrilled to help our customers share in the NPR experience.”
RBR-TVBR observation: Livio has been branding with Pandora as well. It’s a good idea to co-brand these radios with traditional and internet broadcasters. It definitely gets more of them sold. The best option we’ve seen is the ability to press a button and move to the next song. Usually you only see that with a computer monitor in front of you.
