Noncoms get portal on iPhone


American Public Media says it has 150 noncommercial radio stations signed up for a menu option that will make them available on a subscriber’s iPhone, with room for more. The “Public Radio Tuner” is a free option available at the iPhone App Store, giving subs access to the stations. “The free Public Radio Tuner is a great way for public radio to reach existing and new audiences on one of the most popular devices in the country,” says American Public Media New Media Interim Director Melinda Driscoll.

RBR/TVBR observation: Is anybody looking into a similar application for commercial stations?
