Lee and Hatesohl (1993) state that in our waking hours, people spend 9 percent writing, 16 percent reading, 30 percent speaking, and 45 percent listening.

Here, the discussion focuses on the audio media applied in teaching listening skill to the first semester students through the use of radio podcast at STKIP PGRI Tulungagung.The writer presents conceptual study by highlighting the use of radio podcast in teaching listening which is assumed more practical than other media. This condition includes all English lecturers who also busy themselves with the improvement of teaching skill. One of the innovative media used by lecturer is radio podcast.
