DAVID KENNEDY has joined FLYCAST as Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately. KENNEDY has over 35 years experience in the media industry, most recently as CEO/Vice Chairman of INTEREP, and previously as Pres./CEO of SUSQUEHANNA MEDIA CORP.

"I’ve been involved with FLYCAST for the past several years, initially as an investor, and I’m very excited now to more directly help this company continue to lead the mobile entertainment revolution," said KENNEDY. "FLYCAST’s platform for addressing the rapidly growing mobile customer base is compelling, and increasingly, providers of content recognize the imperative and value of a presence on mobile devices. Having seen the company’s roadmap, it’s clear to me that both consumers and content providers are going to benefit from the remarkable advances that FLYCAST will bring to the market in the very near future. I couldn’t be more pleased with the opportunity to work closer than ever now with SAM and his team to execute on such an exciting vision of the future for digital media."
