In addition to unique content, "Dancing with the Stars" Radio gives fans access to backstage gossip and exciting contests throughout the competition. While casual fans can access show highlights and episode re-caps, "Dancing with the Stars" devotees can enjoy in-depth interviews with judges, costume designers and memorable former contestants.

"Our partnership with ABC Radio has helped to give Slacker the edge in providing the best listening experience for users," said Jonathan Sasse, SVP of Product and Programming at Slacker. "Today's addition of 'Dancing with the Stars' Radio gives fans of the program the complete insider's perspective on the show."
