ZenoRadio this week announced the acquisition of AudioNow and the rebranding to Zeno Media. In addition to doubling the number of Zeno Media’s listeners and clients, the purchase included personnel team members in sales, operations and an app development team in Romania. The company is now reaching 6 million monthly active users (MAU).
The acquisition of AudioNow expands the Zeno Media product offering creating a global media powerhouse that serves 2 billion monthly listening minutes in more than 100 languages and across 150 countries. Zeno Media says that “has a breadth of product offerings that help publishers monetize via Call-to-Listen, Free Unlimited Streaming, and Mobile App Development.”
“AudioNow played an important role in the Call-to-Listen and app development space with a client list that represented marquis broadcasters including BBC, Voice of American and ESPN as well as an expansive customer base.” Baruch Herzfeld, Founder, and President of Zeno Media.
Zeno Media has expanded its global reach with offices in New York, Washington DC, Romania, Greece and the Philippines. Zeno Media also hosts satellite offices in several countries including Bangladesh, Belgium, Brazil, Chile, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, France, Ghana, Haiti, India, Jamaica, Kenya, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Nigeria, Senegal, and Somalia.
“Our team is constantly innovating by creating new ways to empower local and established voices all over the world. This strategic acquisition not only broadens our product offering, but also allows us to focus on building a library of content along with licensing deals. These relationships help to give international and niche broadcasters an equal footing by making them more competitive in a fierce marketplace.” Morris Berger, CEO of Zeno Media
