“Throughout these unprecedented times, Fox News Audio has become a destination for listeners to get up to the minute information, whether it’s the latest on the current coronavirus pandemic, insights from the 2020 presidential campaign or in-depth interviews with leading newsmakers,” John Sylvester, VP of Fox News Radio, said in a release. “We are pleased to partner with Spotify, offering their millions of subscribers worldwide access to our best in class content.”
