Slacker let us know about their latest effort to further differentiate themselves from competitors such as Pandora. They just announced a new partnership with ABC to bring personalized lifestyle stations to Slacker with content from sources including Esquire, Car & Driver, Consumer Reports, Popular Mechanics, Complex Magazine and GQ. Topics include Style & Fashion, Cars & Gear, Travel & Adventure, Entertainment, Money, Relationships, Green Living, Parenting and Home Improvement.
The most interesting part is that Slacker is letting you customize the lifestyle content just like you can using their ESPN sports station. You can prioritize topics or even narrow it down with stereotypical “male centric” or “female centric” content.
Definitely worth checking out at www.Slacker.com. The content should be available as you read this including through their free BlackBerry app and is available to all levels of Slacker subscribers.
