(NOVEMBER 2017) – Envision Networks® is proud to announce GeekOut, a daily vignette highlighting everything techie’s love. Each episode covers technology, movies, video games and all things geeky. In a world where being nerdy is cool, GeekOut is the perfect audio and video feature to add to any radio station.
“Everyone in 2017 has an element of ‘geek’ in their lives whether they know it or not,” says GeekOut host, Peter Welpton. “Between smartphones, computers, and the internet -everyone cares about technology. GeekOut was created to present these topics in a way everyone can understand and learn.”
Created by Peter Welpton, former managing director and resident technology guru for longtime hosts Lex and Terry, GeekOut is a versatile, fast-paced feature that can be incorporated into any daypart and broadcast multiple times throughout the day. These one minute vignettes will inform and entertain listeners with compelling tidbits, news and reviews of the latest technology for consumer use. GeekOut can be used anywhere techie’s like to listen and watch…on-air, online and on demand.
“GeekOut offers programming specifically designed for PPM markets at no cost to affiliates,” says Danno Wolkoff, CEO/President Envision Networks. “Radio stations can use the audio on-air to promote the companion tech videos on their website for listeners to view and interact with online and on demand. Listeners will be informed and entertained about the latest technology craze that the everyday geeks enjoy.”
