UK newspaper the Telegraph has launched a daily podcast offering selected newspaper articles.

The newspaper claims to be the first major paper in the UK to do this.

Each transmission lasts between 25-30 minutes and is available as a free download. News is read by Telegraph journalists and commentators.

"Each day, this single audio download features three key articles selected by the editor, to give you a flavour of the day's paper," said The Telegraph.

The podcast is available through iTunes. It has quickly risen to be the 21st most popular podcast on iTunes.
