“We have just begun to tap the power of live audio broadcast online with Spreaker,” said Baschieri. “This launch is not only a turning point for our company, but it’s also a turning point for an upcoming artist, politician or community leader eager to share their voice with the world.”

We want everyone to unleash their inner MC, and bring a rich and robust catalog of radio programs to the million and millions of people online.”

The free online application lets you create your very own personal radio show – from talk to music – and attract listeners who follow you online. Listeners can also discover interesting niche content, which would not be found on traditional FM radios.
