KNOXVILLE — Listening to public radio station WUOT 91.9 FM is now as easy as turning on your iPhone, thanks to a new application launched this week by the station.
The “WUOT iPhone App” is a free download from the Apple iTunes store for iPhones and iPod/Touch devices.
The application broadcasts 24 hours per day from the University of Tennessee-licensed station’s two audio streams, WUOT and WUOT-2, on the station’s Web site.
“Radio isn’t radio in the traditional sense in this day and age,” WUOT Director and General Manager Regina Dean said. “We continually work to serve our listeners in the best way we possibly can. As technologies emerge, it’s important for us to stay up-to-date and give WUOT fans options in how and when they listen.”
WUOT’s application was developed for WUOT by Jacobs Media, which has developed applications for commercial and public radio stations, events and syndicated radio programs including the popular public radio show “Car Talk.” That program can be heard on WUOT Saturdays at 10 a.m. and on WUOT-2 Saturdays at 1 p.m.
Listener-supported WUOT is a member of National Public Radio and a Public Radio International affiliate. The station’s primary format is classical and jazz music, news and public affairs. WUOT serves listeners throughout East Tennessee and parts of Kentucky, North Carolina, Georgia and Virginia. WUOT’s second audio channel, WUOT-2, is available on HD Radio™, Internet radio and on the Web.
