He joins our management team at a time when we see explosive growth in the streaming Internet radio sector. It is our belief that ACCURADIO, with its fully built-out platform for personalizable music channels, is well positioned to take a significantly increased share of this fast-growing market. With his proven ability to build a sales organization, MICHAEL will help provide the increased revenue which we expect to fuel ACCURADIO's growth."

This is a great opportunity to work with KURT HANSON, whom I consider a visionary in the field, and JOHN GEHRON, one of radio's most-admired executives. I couldn't pass-up the chance to help them grow ACCURADIO into a leadership position in what is clearly the most rapidly expanding sector of music listening. My responsibilities here will utilize the experience I have acquired over the last 32 years, combined with the knowledge I am already gaining of a medium still in its infancy."
