April 24, 2008 at 10:45 AM (PT)
UNITED STATIONS RADIO NETWORKS' Comedy Division is launching ANIMADIO, which produces animated versions of several of its radio comedy bits as video content for affiliates and their websites. The new Animation Service uses a team of animators working primarily in the Flash animation format to create companion video pieces to the networks already existing short-form comedy offerings.
"It’s a Video on Demand world, and our affiliates demanded video, so we delivered," stated UNITED STATIONS EVP/Comedy DAVID "DR. DAVE" KOLIN. "I am thrilled to finally be able to combine the collective skill and experience that members of our staff have in television with the proven successful product we have in radio! Our affiliates find our material to be very funny (thank goodness), and they want to deliver the same level of humor to their branded websites as they do in their regular programming, so this quickly became the obvious next step for our comedy material. It will drive traffic and be ideal for local sponsorships."
Samples of the new service are available for all to see can be found here.
