Triton Media Group, the leading supplier of digital products and services to the media industry, announced the acquisition of Radio Companion, a web application and tools company. Radio Companion’s tools and technology solutions were developed to allow broadcast stations to tap into new revenue streams in local markets, currently the fastest growing revenue category for radio. Built with a modular approach which works with any station’s hosting provider, “City Site USA”, “Broadcast Results Search” and “My Studio Link “ are some of Radio Companion’s most notable product offerings.
Neal Schore, President and CEO of Triton commented, “We’ve admired the Radio Companions tools and team for some time now and it’s great to complete this transaction and welcome them to the Triton family. The Radio Companion applications have delivered significant revenue to their client stations. We look forward to providing these exciting products to Triton’s rapidly expanding affiliate base.”
Mike Agovino, Triton Media’s COO commented, “Triton’s commitment to providing ‘best of breed’ digital content and services has helped to make us the leader in this space. That tradition continues with the acquisition of Radio Companion. Chris Peaslee and Tom Pinkus, Radio Companion Co-Founders, are both radio experts and technologists. Having spent many years inside the walls of radio stations as managers, producers, writers and web developers, they have developed all of their products with a practical understanding of the usage, impact and revenue potential for radio.
