Rivet News Radio Aims To Make Commuters Smarter
App delivers personalized news playlists loaded with easily consumable stories


CHICAGO – HearHere Radio Inc. proudly announces an update to its flagship mobile app, Rivet News Radio. Built to deliver smarter news coverage, Rivet provides illuminating original content in a personalized radio experience.

“The average commute time is 25.5 minutes, according to the last census. Our goal is to maximize that time and make sure listeners arrive at the water cooler fully prepared with a personalized mix of sports, business, politics, entertainment and other news,” says John MacLeod, HearHere Radio, Inc. founder and CEO. “We’re focused on delivering true value for on-the-go consumers.”

With a foundation in traditional radio news storytelling, Rivet’s veteran news team develops, reports and uploads original news and programs straight to Rivet users’ playlists. In addition to newsroom content, playlists include stories from trusted media outlets such as the Associated Press, Chicago Public Media and Crain’s Chicago Business.

Rivet News Radio currently brings national and global news coverage to listeners’ personalized playlists. Rivet is also delivering hyperlocal content to listeners in select cities including traffic and weather updates. Rivet News Radio will expand its local content strategy beyond Chicago to Dallas, San Francisco and New York soon.

The app is currently available for IOS download for the iPhone and other iOS devices here. An Android version will be available later in 2014.
