CUMULUS MEDIA NETWORKS ANNOUNCES THE
ADDITION OF DOWNLOAD HD CONTENT SERVICE FOR BROADCASTERS
ATLANTA (May 1, 2012) – Cumulus Media Networks will make Download HD available as a content service for stations nationwide starting in July. Download HD is a broad content service featuring original music, sounds and logos, voice manipulations, on-air stagers, digitally recorded listeners, trivia, tips and factoids. The Download HD service includes more than 20,000 pieces of audio, a similar amount of database written content and more than two million pieces of linked content.
Download HD is the creation of Mike and Bob Lee and Greg Fadick, well known experts in content and sound creation. Previously, they created the Brown Bag production service, which was heard by two billion people globally every day.
The addition of Download HD is part of ongoing efforts to provide enhanced library and prep services to partners of Cumulus Media Networks.
“We are building our reputation by associating with the biggest names and best content in the business,” said Dennis Green, SVP of Affiliate Sales and Broadcast Operations for Cumulus Media Networks. “In the category of creating audio and written content there is no one better than Mike Lee and his team. Download HD is a key component in making Cumulus a one stop shop for the best in production, imaging, music libraries and prep material in the business.“
