Audio from shows such as 60 Minutes and the CBS Evening News is now available on car radios via Aha by Harman.
In addition, Aha now lets outside publishers create their own radio stations for users of Aha’s in-car service.
“In the same way that Amazon let authors self-publish e-books to democratize book publishing, Aha is giving audio publishers access to a global audience, pushing the content to millions cars with our integrated technology,” said Aha by Harman’s Chia-Lin Simmons.
Aha’s service offers more than 30,000 audio stations and access to Rhapsody, Slacker and other apps in an interface that can put presents on your car radio. It works with radios by Alpine, Kenwood and Pioneer as well as factory radios from Acura, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Scion, Subaru and Porsche.
Aha announced this week it partnered with CBS Radio News to offer several programs on Aha. In addition to 60 Minutes and CBS Evening News, it also offers Face the Nation and World News Roundup.
Aha works like this—users download a free app for iPhone or Android and then pick the stations they like including podcasts, audiobooks and social news feeds. Then when the phone is connected to a car radio, the Aha stations become radio presets on the car radio.
