As RBR+TVBR first reported on Monday (12/29), a $200 million “blank check” company with a forthcoming stock to be traded on the Nasdaq market will see two key figures at Emmis Communications in lead roles. Its board includes three others — an ex-Indianapolis mayor, an individual tied with Shamrock Communications in the early 1990s, and a “retired” ESPN Audio chief.
The SPAC, Monument Circle, seeks to merge with a media company focused on sports gaming news and information and content focused on the bettor, although investment in broader areas is possible. With so much attention on audio programming devoted to sports fans who wager on teams and their respective players, RBR+TVBR revisits a recent InFOCUS Podcast interview with Bill Adee.
Adee is the Principal and COO of VSiN, formally known as the Vegas Sports Information Network. It’s grown quickly since the spring of 2017, when Adee joined the Musbergers to launch VSiN, and he shares the latest on how things continue to roll — even through the COVID-19 pandemic.
