[prMac.com] Orem, Utah - Juicy Development has reached an agreement with Chicago's Progressive Talk Radio Station, WCPT AM & FM to offer a live audio stream of "The Great Debate." On March 19th, Thom Hartmann and Michael Medved will go head to head in a debate where no topic is off limits. Tickets to the event are sold out and Juicy Development's Talk Radio iPhone application will be the only way to listen live.
Talk Radio Product Manager David Kyle said, "We are so excited to partner with WCPT to stream this historic event live. Short of being there, this opportunity to listen live is the next best thing."
After successfully featuring President Obama's Historic Inauguration, Juicy Development searched for ways to bring increased value and services to their customers. "The Great Debate" is just one such event. Additional special events are continually being searched for and sponsored. Like all additions to Talk Radio, "The Great Debate" will automatically be added as an option to existing user accounts, as the event grows closer. The broadcast is free to anyone who has purchased the "Talk Radio" application.
Talk Radio uses the location aware technology built into the iPhone to help users locate both local and streaming radio stations across the United States. Listeners are presented with a list of non-streaming local stations they can tune into using their car or other radio or they can choose from one of the available stations that stream content over the Internet. Listeners will never have to worry about missing their favorite show again.
Pricing and Availability:
Talk Radio is available now in the Apple iTunes store for only $2.99 (USD) and works on the iPhone or iPod touch. Requires 2.0 software update.
