We’re pleased to welcome former Microsoft exec Michael Weaver as Vice President of Mobile Strategy.
In that newly-created position, Michael will oversee the integration of the BlogTalkRadio platform into the rapidly-expanding mobile market- place.
Effective immediately, he will be responsible for the dev- elopment and promotion of our iPhone apps; our mobile site, m.blogtalkradio.com; and CinchCast, our newest interactive product.
Michael and his team will also work closely with carriers, portals, consumer brands, advertisers and ad agencies to build our network’s mobile presence.
“Michael is a prominent authority and one of the most sought-after individuals in mobile communications,” says BlogTalkRadio CEO Alan Levy. “He has had his finger on the pulse of mobile since the industry’s inception.”
“BlogTalkRadio has been on my radar for some time now and I am thrilled to be a part of it,” Michael tells us. “The concept is easily adaptable to mobile and will allow us to extend its reach into a rapidly-growing sector that offers users the convenience of listening to their favorite BlogTalkRadio shows on the go.”
