After adding NPR News Channel to iTunes Radio, Apple has gone ahead and brought over dozens of local National Public Radio stations for streaming via iOS or iTunes.

In addition to the local NPR stations, Apple has also added the ESPN Radio station to iTunes Radio. ESPN radio will stream special events such as the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the MLB plays and much more.

Starting today, sports fans can listen to ESPN Radio talk shows and events on iTunes Radio available on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, iTunes on Mac and Windows, and Apple TV. ESPN Radio is the first sports content available on iTunes Radio.

ESPN looks forward to working with Apple to bring expanded local station content to its listeners in the future. ESPN podcasts and on-demand content will continue to be available for download from the iTunes Store.

The live ESPN Radio network stream to be offered features the country’s leading national sports talk shows including Mike & Mike (Greenberg and Golic), The Herd with Colin Cowherd, SVP & Russillo (Scott Van Pelt and Ryen Russillo), The Dan LeBatard Show, Sedano & Stink (Jorge Sedano and Mark Schlereth) and The Freddie Coleman Show.

“We are thrilled to make our industry-leading sports talk and championship play-by-play content available to fans via iTunes Radio,” said Traug Keller, senior vice president, ESPN production business divisions. “And we are excited to partner with Apple to expand our digital reach. Our fans can look forward to expanded ESPN Audio offerings on both the national and local sports levels in the future.”

Apple has been relatively slow rolling out iTunes Radio to more countries, as it only supports the United States and Australia after nearly being rolled out for one year.

Apple has been relatively slow rolling out anything to other countries. Which is why it will eventually lose the battle with google I am afraid. Google is a truly worldwide company. For apple the rest of the world seems like an afterthought. It must be the way it is structured. It has the best gear, but what if you can't use so much of that gear only half in other countries. I AM TALKING TO YOU SIRI! Or iTunes Store movie rentals, marketing, you name it. The talent is in Cupertino but has traditionally refused to look beyond its belly button

You don't look anywhere belong your mind, but when on earth did google have a chance here first off, nexus came and went, we haven't seen it on charts or ever heard about it, but it's the slowest of any phone or probably one of the slowest phones, but the only thing google is good at nowadays is their own search, after youtube style people had lost respect for compared to iTunes layout it hasn't changed except a row of things downloaded is all in one tab, and the stuff onto the side is added to tell what's plugged in and any other things, but overall nearly the same, but still, what chance does google have nowadays?
