About this app

News radio headlines on-demand and live world radio news in English.

📻 Welcome to Steve's 1 Radio News 📻

Major Update - 1 Radio News completely rebuilt. Faster and more news.

Celebrating 200,000+ downloads with new shows and stations added.

I wanted a simple world radio news app, so I built it. I like to quickly listen to radio news headlines on-demand and then stream a live world radio news like the BBC World Service.

How about you?

Please try this free news radio app and let me know if you like it too!

Learn more ...

Press one simple "Play-All" button to listen to hourly radio news.

Or you can listen one at a time to over ten top on-demand English-language breaking news headline sources (1) like BBC News radio, NPR news, CBC, VOA, Fox News Radio, NHK, RFI, UK SkyNews, CBS News Radio, etc. gathered in one convenient place. It's like Amazon Alexa's Flash Briefing without the Amazon Echo required.

Our new daily news collection included NPR's Up First, The Daily podcast from the New York Times, the BBC's Global News and Newshour podcasts, as well as news shows from Canada, Australia, Japan, South Korea, India and more.

After the news podcasts, listen live to our top twenty collection of live radio news stations.

Live stations (1) include the BBC World Service, BBC Radio 4, NPR news (US), CBC (Canada), NDTV audio from India, Al Jazeera, France 24, KBS from Korea, ABC Radio Australia, Voice of America, RTE Radio 1 from Ireland, and more radio news stations - all in English. The NPR news live stream includes Morning Edition and All Things Considered.

Try this free radio app to see all the stations. It's like shortwave radio reborn. (If you are asking what the heck shortwave radio is, that's OK ... if you love real news, this app is for you) The app works best on 4G or WiFi.

Actually, if you are a big world news junkie or shortwave radio fan, you will want to check out 4.6 rated 1 Radio News Pro - http://1radionews.com - with world news radio in English from 65+ countries. It has the top 350 radio shows on-demand (aka news podcasts) and over 200 carefully selected live stations in or with English. Progressive and conservative talk radio too.

You might be asking, "But do they have the Voice of Mongolia?" Well, gosh darn, we do! OK, you probably didn't ask that, but you wouldn't believe what we found with our 1,000+ hours of scouring the net for news radio. You'll find great news audio that is not available in any other mobile radio app.

Let us know how you like the news app and email us any technical questions: comments@1radionews.com

Happy Listening!

Love 1 Radio News! Was hoping this would be a good replacement to the old version, but am unable to pause audio using Bluetooth headset button like I could with the old one. Was hoping the latest update would fix this, but it hasn't. So I will continue to use the old one for now (even though it has some significant issues of its own).

This is *exactly* the issue we are fixing in the Beta before we have a full next release.

This app makes you go through too many hoops to turn it off. You exit out of it only to have an ad pop up keeping the app on. Keeping it on and draining your battery! Once I exit out of an app I expect it to STAY SHUT. not to mention the channels can be difficult to find. if you click on one channel, for example Fox news, good luck finding the MSNBC icon you saw 5 minutes ago. In other words the menu seems to change once you click onto a channel. But mostly the app doesn't close when you close

We are doing a fundraiser for a full rebuild of the app to take care of problems like this. Pro version has favorites and search!

great app, excellent idea. I like the blend of sources present. it's a good mix to get multiple country perspectives. But it's missing a couple key sources... Townhall's hourly newscast is missing, as is Salem Radio News's hourly newscast. I also noticed that all the sources come from social-democratic outlets. Sky News has an hourly newscast too, and it wasn't there. But props for an app with so many different newscasts. This is exactly the sort of app I was looking for.

In our Pro version, we have Salem, USA Radio Network, Wall Street Journal, Barrons ... and a more "lefty" news headline sources I kept off Free. I'll check out Townhall. SkyNews is right there on Free after Fox. As a global source with lots of public broadcasters the only ones with headline podcasts, it reflects that aspect around the world.
