"The technology, sales and distribution challenges are pretty daunting for solo local media companies to do alone," explains Ben Eason, owner of The Networked Planet.
...
"We believe the 121 technology, combined with the brand, sales and marketing talent of The Flyer sales team, can become a highly valuable resource for local publishers and local businesses," says Eason who will lead the new venture.
For 121 Mobile, the joint venture represents an opportunity to showcase its technology in a region that has long been an incubator for media. The Tampa Bay market has historically been a robust one for newspapers, a showcase for local radio stations a the birthplace of the Home Shopping Network, and home to Nielsen's Global Operations team and a wide variety of television and cable pioneers.
"The Tampa Bay market is an attractive showcase for 121 Mobile. We are pleased to be working with local media pioneers Dick Mandt and Ben Eason in this joint venture and looking forward to a broad community rollout of the 121 Mobile platform," says 121 Mobile CEO Alon Omer.
