Starting today, you can get on your Alexa Echo devices, completely free.

For years now, you’ve been able to get the latest news from through your Alexa smart speaker or display device – if you haven’t tried this before, just go to to the Alexa app on your phone and add the Flash Briefing to your morning news briefing. It will read the most recent post from the web site out loud for you you don’t miss the latest.

As of today, you can get both the new newsreader skill, and the player skill.

Go here to get started, and add both the skills to your library.

From all of us at, thank you for being with us. The best is yet to come.

— Gene Turnbow founder and Station Manager
