sprint1Sprint users will soon be able to access their local FM radio stations via select Android and Windows smartphones. The wireless carrier will allow users to listen to local radio channels through the NextRadio tuner for the next three years. The service is expected to become available later in 2013.

“We look forward to bringing Sprint customers another entertainment choice through NextRadio,” Sprint Sr. VP/Product Development and Operations Fared Adib said via a release. “This new, easy-to-use service adds another dimension to the versatility of our wide array of smartphones and will deliver a new avenue for thousands of local radio stations across the country to reach customers.”

“This opportunity combines the strengths of the Sprint network with the impact of America’s radio stations,” NAB president Gordon Smith added via a release. “It is the type of business-to-business partnership that recognizes the unique strengths of the wireless networks and the radio industry and provides services that are so important to the American people.”
