I will never forget how impressed I was by their creativity, attitude and vision to foresee our industry’s need to embrace technology. When the opportunity arose to work with them again, I jumped at the chance! Every component of Vipology’s websites and social incentive programs is first class and brings stations a flexible, easy-to-manage and completely compelling online platform to engage listeners and deliver premium opportunities for advertisers.”
Chris Peaslee, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vipology said: “I’ve admired Dave for many years, so when this partnership presented itself, my instant response was ‘I’m all in’. “Chachi” and his team at Benztown are smart, innovative and talented. We couldn’t be happier working together.”
