Personalized Talk Radio Service Stitcher Closes $6 Million Second Round

Stitcher, a service that lets talk radio listeners move programs to their mobile devices, has completed a $6 million second round funding. The round was led by Benchmark Capital. Previous backer New Atlantic Ventures also participated, as did individual investors Ed Scott and Ron Conway. San Francisco-based Stitcher plans to use the proceeds for general product and platform development.

Stitcher’s service is free and resembles what LastFM and Pandora do for music. Users pick their radio programs and add it to a customized “station” on their mobile device. The two-year-old Stitcher previously raised $3 million in funding.
