A couple of weeks ago I talked about how ITunes radio is now introducing a new stand-alone platform that will operate without the use of the ITunes. Since the launch of its radio sector of ITunes, the platform is climbing in popularity and now has a news radio segment added to it. NPR is the station adding a segment to the growing ITunes platform. Although not too ecstatic about the merger, NPR reminds it listeners that their radio is still accessible for free off of the internet. Itunes has boasted on its billions of users that have taken part in the new platform since its launch. With Itunes creeping around the corner they could eventually shut down Pandora.
