In light of the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio has made the shift to remote broadcasting.

Hosts including Zane Lowe and Julie Adenuga will now broadcast their shows from home and use FaceTime to conduct interviews with artists from around the globe.

“To prioritize the health and safety of its staff and guests, beginning today, Apple Music hosts will record their shows with field equipment from their homes, working virtually via FaceTime on iPhone,” the company said in a statement.

“Tune in for an array of fresh and genre-spanning shows through out the week as Beats 1 remains committed to continuing to deliver its eclectic programming to passionate music fans across the globe.”

The change took place on March 23 and is set to remain in place until further instructions from governments around the world state otherwise.
