Premiere Networks today announced a new, exclusive, long-term national sales representation agreement with Futuri Media. The partnership includes all of Futuri's interactive radio programming platform brands: LDR (Listener Driven Radio), Futuri Mobile Apps, and the rapidly-growing TopicPulse, a social media monitoring system for broadcast stations across the U.S.
Additionally, Premiere's international division will offer Futuri's systems and services to Canada and, later this year, to the UK and continental European markets.
"We love working with forward-thinking companies whose teams are focused on success for local affiliates, and Futuri Media delivers every time," said Premiere Networks President Julie Talbott. "This new agreement testifies to the great working relationship we've had for years as Futuri has evolved from LDR. Daniel Anstandig and the Futuri team exemplify Premiere's ongoing commitment to supporting broadcasters around the world with solutions that drive ratings, revenue, and digital engagement growth."
"Premiere Networks is the undisputed leader in network radio," said Futuri Media CEO Daniel Anstandig. "The long-term renewal of our exclusive agreement with Premiere speaks to the tremendous collaboration we've had with Julie Talbott, Eileen Thorgusen, and the Premiere Networks team. They are absolutely the best in the business."
