Dave “Chachi” Denes, President, Benztown, said: “I’ve worked with Tracy Johnson for years, and I respect the quality and innovation he brings to building listener engagement, in particular. With Spotted Dog, he has created a feature-filled customized contest program for stations that can turn up the excitement on radio stations of virtually any format.
