ZenoLive is a platform for broadcasters to produce and manage their radio content. ZenoLive allows users to broadcast live using a microphone and an internet connection or telephone signal. Listeners listen to the broadcasts by calling a "call-to-listen" number unique to the radio station they wish to listen to, and they listen through their phone.

ZenoLive is most popular among immigrant communities and cultural diasporas. It allows immigrants to listen to programming from their home country for free. ZenoLive is the largest radio broadcast distributor for diaspora communities.[1] Many broadcasters and listeners are from West Africa, Central Asia, and the Caribbean, but now live in or near New York City. Ghana, Nigeria, Haiti and the Dominican Republic are ZenoLive's biggest ethnic media broadcaster and listener groups.[2][3] ZenoLive’s Voice From Home™ service is currently the largest radio-by-phone audio distribution channel for immigrant communities in the US.[4]

Background[edit]

ZenoLive was launched by ZenoRadio, in the summer of 2015.[5]
