Emmis Interactive signs Corus Entertainment


Emmis Interactive  announced a partnership with top Canadian broadcaster Corus Entertainment to serve 20 radio stations in six markets. "Over the past year we have been working with Emmis Interactive to develop deeper and richer revenue streams at the local level," said David Huszar, General Manager of Splice Interactive Media, provider of interactive services to Corus radio properties.

"Revenues in the markets served by Emmis Interactive have collectively increased 40 percent versus the prior year giving us tremendous momentum as we crossover to a new fiscal year on September 1st. We’ve enjoyed working collaboratively with a company that shares our approach to strategic selling and look forward to expanding on this partnership."

Since announcing its intent to market its services to radio broadcasters and other local media companies in late April, Emmis Interactive has announced partnerships with Lincoln Financial Media, Renda Broadcasting and Big League Broadcasting, as well as announcing a licensing agreement with the iTunes  Store to market its custom Storefront technology.
