RADIO EXPRESS has entered into an agreement with JACOBS MEDIA to exclusively market and sell JACOBS’ radio apps in LATIN AMERICA and AFRICA through their app company, JACAPPS. RADIO EXPRESS will take JACAPPS’ all new V4 platform for radio internationally for the first time since its introduction in the U.S. earlier this year, providing stations with their own branded app on smartphones and other mobiles devices at an affordable price.
RADIO EXPRESS Pres./CEO BARBARA ROUNDS said, “RADIO EXPRESS’ longstanding network of relationships with radio stations throughout LATIN AMERICA and AFRICA, paired with JACAPPS’ customizable apps developed especially for radio stations, make an unbeatable combination. Now stations in LATIN AMERICA and AFRICA can affordably have their own branded station apps to engage their listeners and differentiate themselves with audiences -- and they don’t have to be tied to aggregated apps. JACAPPS’ new V4 platform puts stations in control of their app, their brand, and their content. Listeners can read and post directly from the app to stations’ FACEBOOK, TWITTER and INSTAGRAM feeds, and all of the content in their app is quickly shareable by their listeners to help drive the kind of viral behavior that engages audiences and builds station brands. We think stations in these international markets will be thrilled with the results.”
JACAPPS Pres. PAUL JACOBS said: “JACAPPS has had extraordinary success in the U.S. and CANADA, and we’ve been looking for a partner to help us expand into other international markets. RADIO EXPRESS is the perfect partner for us. They know the radio business, and they value content, which is in our company DNA. Our combined approach brings an outstanding app package to broadcasters around the world.”
