The app launches on the 10th anniversary of ESPNRadio.com, which in 2010 remained as the most listened to live stream of any terrestrial broadcaster in the world -- reaching more than 3 million unique users per month (source: Omniture) and 1 million unique listeners per month, more than double what it was the previous year (source: Ando Media). It was also the largest, most-listened-to talk format stream, both terrestrially and via Internet-only streaming, generating nearly 10 million total sessions per month, up 33 percent.
