NextRadio has added a new feature that offers more radio station content in an interactive format. The new “Newsfeed” content includes customized content specific to users’ favorite stations and formats, as well as Alert FM messages, provided through a partnership with Global Security Systems.

NextRadio says it plans to utilize the Newsfeed to experiment with content tied to radio stations and listeners. It currently offers trending tweets from a user’s favorite radio shows, artist and song facts and concert announcements and tickets, which can be purchased through Vivid Seats

According to a release, the Alert FM feature is opt-in, so users who do not want to receive these alerts will not see them. However, NextRadio says many users already rely on the app for alerts.
