Author SSI Category , ,

ESPNRadio.com is the most listened-to online stream of any terrestrial station in the world. They reach more than 420,000 unique listeners per month and pull in a total of 1.9 million sessions per month, an increase of 25 percent compared to last year.

ESPNRadio.com’s audio stream averages about 2.5 hours per session. Even their website is the most visited online sports radio site in the US and has almost 9 million page views and over 2 million visits per month!

I guess we don’t realize how important sports radio is, especially once you move away from your hometown and can’t catch the games on TV anymore... it's nice to be able to listen via stream anywhere, anytime.

There are plenty of Internet radio applications for web-connected mobile phones that let you tune in to your favorite webcasts on the go, but what about other devices that lack cellular connections? A new series of portable routers take an Internet connection from cellular providers like Sprint and make it available on a Wi-Fi network, allowing devices like the iPod Touch or netbooks to access Net radio on the go.

It creates, as Sprint CEO Daniel R. Hesse calls it, “a personal Wi-Fi bubble.” One of these devices, called MiFi, is becoming more and more popular. New York Times columnist Saul Hansell noticed that “on my commuter bus ride to New Jersey, my laptop is picking up hot spots called MiFi, implying that people are already throwing these gadgets in their purses or briefcases so they can surf on the road.” For more on these devices, check out The New York Times’ coverage here.
