Hot on the heels of the announcement that Apple had acquired the Beats Music streaming service for $3 billion to help bolster its own struggling competitor, 9to5Mac has learned that Apple is introducing a new ESPN station for iTunes Radio. The station will include original ESPN programs like SportsCenter All Night, SVP and Russillo, The Herd, and Mike & Mike.

The ESPN station will also stream the World Cup, making it the first live sporting event to be streamed live through iTunes Radio.

According to a 9to5Mac source, forty-two new local NPR stations will also be going live on Apple’s streaming service, including New York Public Radio, WAMU in Washington, D.C., San Francisco’s KQED, and more, with additional stations already planned.
