Canadian broadcaster Corus Entertainment has chosen the Viigo platform for mobile content delivery for its nine radio stations.
Viigo will do more than simply stream the station’s signal; IT will provide all of the station’s Web site content including weather, stock quotes, travel, sports scores, etc., the supplier stated. Viigo works with Windows Mobile and BlackBerry phones. Corus has stations in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Hamilton.
Corus Interactive and Integrated Solutions VP and GM David Huszar said, “Corus Radio is always looking to extend our brands where our listeners are. We know listeners are actively engaged with smartphones and Viigo allows our stations to tap into that growing market of consumers and deliver them great content.”
Viigo CEO Mark Ruddock said, “The relationship forged between Viigo and Corus Entertainment provides listeners with the ability to access a compelling array of news, views and information, all designed to augment their listening experience.”
