Life is busy and you are always on the go. That doesn’t stop you from wanting to stay up-to-date on the latest breaking news. We know you love reading the news online, as well as watching our broadcast.

Sometimes, though, screentime just isn’t possible—maybe you’re driving or somewhere where watching or reading just can’t be done. What can you do then?

We’ve got you covered and have found a great app to fill that gap. Say hello to our national news partner Newsy Radio.

The Newsy Radio app for iOS allows busy mobile users to keep up-to-date on the latest developments in national and world news without being tied to a video screen. Newsy Radio gives users a hands-free radio format to get caught up on the news quickly with a concise, to-the-point presentation. News topics include politics, entertainment, science, health, business and technology—all focused on the millennial audience.

With Newsy Radio, it doesn’t matter if you’re dropping off the carpool kids, commuting to work or working out at the gym. You get up-to-the-minute reporting and stay on top of breaking news. Standout features include:

? Avoid missing important information with a convenient 15-second rewind button
? Easily fast-forward to each story with large, finger-friendly controls
? Set the app to Night Mode for easier viewing during evenings and limited light situations
? Choose between normal and higher-quality audio

When you’re out and about and not able to catch the news online or on-the-air, make sure to download the easy-to-use Newsy Radio app to get your news fix.
