With the new MeRadio, listeners can select and follow any or all of the 11 Mediacorp radio stations and subscribe to their favorite podcasts.

MeRadio will push content tailored to users' tastes – such as on-demand podcasts, bite-sized breaking news and intimate insights pulled from their favourite DJs’ social media accounts.

“MeRadio showcases the best of Mediacorp’s live and on-demand audio content while catering to each listener’s unique habits and preferences,” said Indranil Sarkar, Lead, Partnerships & New Business, Mediacorp.

Added Mr Sarkar, “We have revamped our audio-streaming infrastructure to deliver up to 33 percent higher bitrate to our listeners and reduce lag-time by up to 66 percent. This will provide you with a higher quality streaming experience on the go.”

The reconfigured MeRadio feed also gathers real-time feedback on audience reactions to songs on rotation. Users can also participate in pop quizzes to unlock amusing anecdotes on DJs from the stations they follow.
