"We're adding a new dimension to the Dancing with the Stars experience by offering on demand, digital audio content that compliments the viewing experience and increases engagement between the audience and the cast," said Steve Jones, Vice President and General Manager of ABC News Radio.

"Dancing with the Stars" Radio offers a variety of digital content that puts the user in control, allowing fans to skip over or select updated content based on preference. 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."

Season 15 kicks off with an all-star cast of former contestants who will return to the dance floor to battle it out for a chance to win the coveted mirror ball trophy. This season of "Dancing with the Stars" will feature a wide variety of fan favorites from revered athletes like NFL star Emmitt Smith (Season 3) and Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson (Season 8) to actors and singers like Kirstie Alley (Season 12), Pamela Anderson (Season 10) and 98 Degrees star Drew Lachey (Season 2).
