Connect KSL to your Amazon Echo Device

Dec 20, 2017, 3:24 PM

Christmas is here and if you’re lucky enough to have an Amazon Echo device under the tree, you might be asking “Cool…now what?” Have no fear – we’re here to help! It’s dead simple to connect with KSL content pretty much straight out-of-the-box.

Once you get your dot plugged in and hooked to WiFi, simply say “Alexa, play KSL Newsradio.” It’s that easy! Your Echo will immediately join the KSL Newsradio (102.7 FM and 1160 AM) live stream in progress, providing you the latest on breaking news, traffic and weather conditions.

Perhaps you’d like to take it a step further… Amazon offers what they call a “flash briefing,” giving you a quick update from the news sources of your choice. To make sure you’re getting the latest from KSL, download the Amazon Alexa companion app for your iPhone or Android device. Once downloaded, launch the app and click on “settings.” From there, click on “Flash Briefing” and search “KSL.” You’ll see options for the latest KSL Newsradio news, traffic, weather and more! Once you’ve selected KSL as your news source(s), access it anytime by saying “Alexa, what’s my flash briefing?”

It doesn’t stop there! You can even listen to many of KSL Newsradio’s podcasts simply by asking for them! Try “Alexa, listen to Nightside Project podcast” and see what happens! By saying “Alexa, play Jeff Caplan’s My Minute of News Podcast,” your dot will launch the latest episode of the fan favorite segment!

“Innovation is an important part of Bonneville International’s brand and business strategy,” said Jon Accarrino, Bonneville Salt Lake’s Executive Director of Business Development. “Having a strong presence on connected home devices, like the Amazon Echo, is an important piece of our “KSL Everywhere” efforts. From mobile and connected TV apps, to live streams and smart speakers, we’re always looking for new digital opportunities for both our audiences and brands.”
