EMMIS COMMUNICATIONS CORP. is staging a free informational event for broadcasters to help ready their stations for the launch of the NEXTRADIO mobile app in SPRINT smartphones this year. The forum will be held on WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27th at its headquarters in INDIANAPOLIS.
Topics will include an overview of the agreement with SPRINT, a demonstration of the NEXTRADIO app, a presentation of the options available for content delivery to the app, an overview of the technical requirements and set-up process for TagStation, the cloud-based engine that supplies data to NEXTRADIO, and plenty of Q&A.
"Step one of this SPRINT partnership was to win the opportunity to prove how radio can be on the leading edge of technology," EMMIS Chief Technology Officer PAUL BRENNER said. "While the partnership is being finalized, these forums are a way to educate all broadcasters on the expectations of SPRINT in making the launch of the FM Radio App a visual and interactive radio listening experience for every radio station in AMERICA. You will be surprised how easy the process is to prepare stations for the SPRINT launch whether the station is large market, medium market, commercial or non-commercial."
The event will be simulcast via webinar, and an alternate webinar-only event is scheduled for MARCH 6th for those that cannot attend in FEBRUARY. Please visit www.NextRadioApp.com/events for details and to register for the event.
