Online radio service Slacker said today it will begin offering users access to ESPN Audio content.
Slacker users will have access to a dedicated station for sports entertainment, with the option to include ESPN SportsCenter headlines for hourly updates on any Slacker station, and and the ability to create custom sports stations with ESPN Radio programming.
ESPN on Slacker Radio will feature up-to-the-minute coverage of major sporting events and news stories on both a national and regional level. The ESPN Radio station will also offer access to content from multiple ESPN programs and platforms, including Mike & Mike in the Morning, SportsCenter, and The Herd with Colin Cowherd.
Users of the free Slacker Basic Radio service will have access to the interactive programmed ESPN station. Slacker Radio subscribers will have unlimited access to ESPN Radio integration including the ad-free programmed station with unlimited skips, the ability to create a personalized, custom sports station based on a number of preferences including specific sports, regions and teams, and the choice to add top of the hour SportsCenter updates in English or Spanish to any Slacker station.
Slacker said ESPN Radio integration is “coming soon” but did not provide a specific date.
“ESPN Audio is the authoritative voice of sports news and original programming, which is key to Slacker's goal to offer our listeners access to the most diverse content and programming possible," said Jonathan Sasse, senior vice president of marketing at Slacker.
