Slacker Radio let us know that they have added some new ABC News integration today that should give Slacker Plus subscribers another reason to stick around. They have added two ways for you to get ABC News through Slacker. You can choose to listen to the stand alone ABC News Station which is nice but not so innovative. Alternatively you have the ability to add “top of the hour” news updates to any of your current Slacker stations. It is kind of like moving back to regular radio where you get news at the top of the hour.
The ABC News station is available within the Slacker application under "News" or at www.Slacker.com/ABCNews from a your computer. Headline News updates for music stations can be activated from your Slacker account page. The ABC News station/service is included in all Slacker Radio Plus subscriptions but Slacker Radio Basic users will get a free 14 day trial.
