The additions build on the momentum that Benztown has driven since the company came on the U.S. radio scene in 2009, led by L.A. programming veteran, Dave “Chachi” Denes, Benztown President. Established in 2004 in Stuttgart, Germany, by CEO Andreas Sannemann and Oliver Klenk, two of Europe’s hottest programming and production talents, Benztown now has over 1,200 affiliations on six different continents.

Benztown is the first company to successfully monetize the voice-over for barter model. With hundreds of barter and cash deals in place and an extensive roster of world-class voice-over talent, Benztown signed the industry’s first-ever radio group deal for imaging services with Cumulus Media in 2012.
