Dear Salon reader --

You may have heard that earlier this year Salon acquired, the pioneering Web site dedicated to spoken word recordings in MP3 and RealAudio formats. We're proud to announce that MP3Lit has now been relaunched as Salon Audio, our newest Salon network site.

Salon Audio will serve as a hub for all of Salon's audio initiatives, including our recently unveiled radio program, "The Word," and new weekly audio columns from your favorite Salon writers like Amy Reiter, Michael Sragow, Laura Miller and others. Salon Audio also features free spoken-word recordings from hundreds of authors in every genre, plus insightful interviews and other original audio content from the pages of Salon.

With recordings in streaming audio and downloadable MP3 formats, you can listen to Salon Audio on your computer, or on the go via portable MP3 players and other new digital audio-enabled devices.

We hope you enjoy this new addition to Salon's award-winning network of Web sites, and we look forward to bringing you the best original audio on the Web. If you need help listening to audio files, please consult our Audio How-to page.

vice president, audio
