MARKETPLACE, THE SPLENDID TABLE AND MORE NOW AVAILABLE ON DEMAND IN THE KALIKI AUDIO NEWSSTAND APP AS PART OF NEW PARTNERSHIP
Live demos of the product and APM content at CES this week
(St. Paul, Minn.) January 6, 2014— American Public Media today announced its partnership with BT Software and the Kaliki Audio Newsstand, allowing users on-demand access to their favorite APM programs, including Marketplace®, The Splendid Table® and The Dinner Party Download®, whenever and wherever they want through the Kaliki application. The Kaliki application will be available in many of General Motors’ vehicles coming this year.
“Not only do our audiences expect us to be with them wherever they go, they want to be able to listen to our content, whenever they want, on demand,” said Mike Reszler, vice president of digital media at American Public Media. “We’re committed to expanding access to our content with various platforms and are thrilled to be joining the Kaliki Audio Newsstand.”
“We recognize that the radio is by far the most frequently used form of entertainment in the vehicle, and the Kaliki platform transcends the traditional radio by allowing drivers to listen to their favorite programs on their own schedule,” said Bruce Hopkins, vice president of sales at Kaliki. “Our partnership with American Public Media allows drivers and mobile users to quickly get access to widely popular APM shows like Marketplace® and The Splendid Table®.”
The Kaliki Audio Newsstand is one of the inaugural applications in the Chevrolet AppShop, announced at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show. The AppShop will be available this summer on select 2015 U.S. and Canadian models with MyLink infotainment, including the Corvette, Equinox, Impala, Malibu, Volt, Silverado and Silverado HD.
