(What this program is)
I’m going to describe an interesting and informative radio program that I have listened to for more than five years. It is Bloomberg Radio, a service of Bloomberg L.P, which provides global business news programming 24 hours a day. Bloomberg Radio is broadcast on radio stations around the United States, and directly operates four radio stations.
(When and where you listen to this program)
As an English language learner, I want to improve my linguistic proficiency through acquiring knowledge in the field of economy and politics in America. Therefore, I searched for several entrusted American radio programs, which help me focus on my study rather than following TV channels. I listened to Bloomberg Radio during my study time, mostly at home and on the bus to school.
(What the contents of this program are)
Throughout the day, Bloomberg Radio delivers in-depth coverage of the financial markets coupled with insightful interviews with influential newsmakers, analysts, and company executives. On off hours, local stations may preempt with local sports play-by-play coverage such as college basketball, tennis and other sports coverage. Empowered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries, Bloomberg Radio’s resources are unparalleled.

Without a doubt, this program has benefited my academic English substantially. My vocabulary reservoir has been enriched over time thanks to my consistent subscription to this radio program. Most importantly, I have accumulated valuable economic knowledge through the radio’s detailed, comprehensive analysis. I am particularly impressed by its slogan: “Because the financial markets never sleep, Bloomberg follows them around the globe.”
