Westport, Conn. Drew Hilles Rob Williams
The Media Dash’s self-serve, online platform, still under development and scheduled for launch in the second quarter of 2011, will allow radio advertisers and broadcasters to execute media transactions with greater ease, speed and accountability.
"Our mission is to enhance and simplify the purchase and sale of radio advertising – making it as easy to conduct a transaction as it is to buy Internet advertising online," said Mr. Hilles. "We’ve placed extensive effort into our platform’s interface and usability to allow advertisers of all sizes to purchase effective radio campaigns to help them achieve their business goals."

"Radio continues to reach 93 percent of all people 12 years and older – it is a completely ubiquitous medium," said Mr. Williams. "Having lived and breathed radio for many years, we understand the challenges faced by broadcasters and advertisers. We hope to do our part to help improve the competitiveness of the medium."
