Pandora is launching UNINTERRUPTED Radio, a brand new and exclusive station that features music selected by top NBA and WNBA players. With UNINTERRUPTED, listeners get access to the very soundtracks that top athletes listen to on and off the court, including those curated and used by LeBron James, Kyle Kuzma, Trae Young, A’ja Wilson, Draymond Green, Lonzo Ball, Skylar Diggins-Smith, Tobias Harris, Angel McCoughtry and others. UNINTERRUPTED Radio, available today, coincides with the NBA resuming the 2020 season from the NBA bubble in Disney World’s ESPN Wide World of Sports near Orlando, Florida and the WNBA season happening from the WNBA bubble in Bradenton, Florida.
UNINTERRUPTED Radio launches as one of Pandora’s first curated stations to feature its Modes functionality, giving fans even more control over their listening experience by offering selectable and thematic sub-stations curated by their favorite athletes with special audio drops throughout. UNINTERRUPTED Radio will launch with Tip-Off, Vet, and Postgame Modes, with more to come as the station evolves.
- Tip-Off Mode for getting hyped up with music from Meek Mill, Pop Smoke, Megan Thee Stallion, and more.
- Vet Mode for throwback hip-hop tracks with music from Jay-Z, Tupac, Notorious BIG, and more.
- Postgame Mode for laid-back listening with music from Rod Wave, Summer Walker, Wale, and others.
