Other Apps

Certain ESPN affiliated radio stations have their own branded iPhone apps that stream ESPN Radio to your device. Most of these stations broadcast only some ESPN shows and fill the rest of the time slots with local programming. We’ve gathered a couple apps that broadcast “The Herd” with Colin Cowherd.

790 AM The Ticket – Miami, FL

Listen to “The Herd” from 10am to 1pm every weekday with the iPhone App from 790 the Ticket in Miami.

Do you know of any other good solutions to listen to the Herd for free on iPhone or Android? (or even Blackberry) If so, let us know in the comments!

If you’d prefer to drop a few bucks and get all the ESPN radio shows, ESPN Radio has an iPhone, Android, and Blackberry app that allows you to listen to ESPN Radio flagship programs like The Herd with Colin Cowherd, Mike and Mike, and more. You’ll also get podcasts and some local programming from the major affiliates like ESPN 103.3 in Dallas, Texas. You can grab that app for $2.99 in the iTunes store. That app, however, currently has a lot of negative reviews, so for now I’ll continue to use these free alternatives to listen to Conlin Cowherd.
