Audioboo welcomes a host of university radio stations to its revamped platform

Social sound platform Audioboo has announced that a host of university radio stations have joined the platform, including teams from Warwick, Sheffield, Bristol, Sunderland, Portsmouth and Exeter. Audioboo unveiled a site redesign at the start of this year, followed by a new Android app in February – developments which have already resulted in an influx of new users, notably in the student and higher education sector.

Rob Proctor, CEO of Audioboo the audio news platform commented:
“We are over the moon that so many of the next generation of broadcasting talent have chosen to work with Audioboo. {{We’ve always been aware of the huge potential that the platform offers radio stations – bringing sound into their social media presence}} and offering an alternative to old-fashioned phone-ins. These latest additions have been using their channels in an exemplary way, and we’re looking forward to following them in their future careers!”

Jimmy Murthi, Station Manager at Radio Warwick commented:
“We’ve really enjoyed using Audioboo – it gives us a great way to quickly share material with our listeners and its facilities for integration with social media make it an ideal platform on which to host our content. We’re looking forward to expanding our use of Audioboo in the future by integrating it with our on-demand services to provide an easy way for people to hear the very best of our output.”

James Kenny, Station Manager for Forge Radio at the University of Sheffield added:
“Forge Radio are using Audioboo to upload and broadcast instant content in a simple, yet professional manner. This content ranges from instant sports match updates to important student politics-election debates and speeches. It also allows our shows to promote extra content, uploading teasers from behind the scenes of a student radio event for instance. Audioboo has been one of the most useful tools in Forge Radio’s progress as a student radio station this year.”
