ACCURADIO.COM has appointed renown radio executive and programmer JOHN GEHRON as its lead Management Consultant. He will help the company raise a "Series A" investment round, the proceeds of which will be used to enhance ACCURADIO's management team, build a direct sales force, and launch a national marketing campaign..
GEHRON previously worked with ACCURADIO.COM Founder KURT HANSON in the mid-'70s, when Gehron was PD of then-Top 40 WLS/CHICAGO and HANSON was a UNIV. OF CHICAGO student who interned at WLS.
"There are really only four meaningful brands of personalizable Internet radio -- PANDORA, SLACKER, LAST.FM and ACCURADIO," GEHRON said "While the first three of those are great for early adopters and music enthusiasts, I believe there’s a big opportunity in the market for a brand like ACCURADIO that’s aimed at a more mainstream, mass-appeal listener base."
