The New York Times today announced the launch of its new audio journalism app, New York Times Audio, with exclusive shows, dispatches and audio articles to keep listeners informed and inspired every day. Curated by Times journalists and editors, the app includes daily programming across a breadth of topics — news, politics, arts, business, tech, culture, lifestyle, sports and opinion — providing listeners with a fresh perspective on everything from world events to cooking tips. The app is available for news subscribers on iOS.
New York Times Audio features exclusive shows, a daily playlist of news and ideas that brings you the essential things to listen to each weekday morning, new episodes of “This American Life” a day early and a range of narrated articles from The New York Times and other top publishers. With New York Times Audio, The Times has built a vibrant home for captivating storytelling designed to engage, inform and inspire listeners.
“We’re thrilled to introduce more people to a new way of experiencing The New York Times,” said Stephanie Preiss, senior vice president and general manager, Audio. “Audio journalism has the power to bring stories to life, and our app now allows our audience to take The Times with them — on dog walks, while commuting — in moments when reading isn’t an option. Offering New York Times Audio to news subscribers is just one way we’re adding more value to a Times subscription, in more moments throughout their day.”
Paula Szuchman, director of Audio, added, “With the launch of ‘The Daily’ in 2017, The Times fundamentally changed the podcast world, inventing a new form of audio journalism. Our new app is reordering the status quo yet again. A daily front page, told in Audio, curated by Times editors and powered by the Times newsroom. I couldn’t be more excited to share what we’ve been working on, including our first new daily show since ‘The Daily’ and surprising, delightful, inspiring stories from our critics and writers across Culture, Lifestyle, Food and beyond.”
Along with all New York Times podcasts like “The Daily,” “The Ezra Klein Show,” “Hard Fork,” “Modern Love,” “The Run-Up” and more, New York Times Audio features shows made exclusively for the app, including:
