It's been nearly a year since Apple announced its plans to join Spotify, Rdio and Pandora as a music streaming service provider. However, while beats, melodies and harmony are great, some would say iTunes Radio's sonic buffet is lacking -- it has no news channels. No longer. NPR has joined the service as a 24-hour news streaming station, with broadcasts starting right now. Of course, folks have long been able to get their public radio fix via NPR's website, but now fanboys and girls can get it straight from Apple's service. For now, NPR is the first and only news channel on iTunes Radio, but we've a sneaking suspicion that exclusivity won't last for long.
