CES 2017: Otto Radio Looks to be the Pandora of Podcasts

Among the up-and-coming technical innovations of particular interest to radio broadcasters at CES 2017 is Otto Radio, which debuted in 2016 and has now received funding from Samsung NEXT, the venture capital arm of the Samsung Group. The funds will help push Otto Everywhere, a personalized radio app that plays news and podcasts, among other innovations.

Displaying its wares at the CES Eureka Park Marketplace—the conference’s primary destination for up-and-coming products—Otto aims at CES to find new partners and content providers to expand its footprint in the personalized media space relating to connected and autonomous cars, smart audio devices and appliances.
