Premiere Networks Announces Integration with Marketron Network Connect Service to Fully Automate the Management of Network Orders for Media Groups

Solution increases efficiency, accuracy and accountability for stations, networks and advertisers

Los Angeles, CA and Hailey, ID, May 15, 2012 - Premiere Networks, the number one audio content provider in the country, and Marketron, the leading provider of business software solutions and services for the media industry, today announced the completion of the interface connecting Premiere's network traffic system with Network Connect, a Marketron Mediascape Service that fully automates the process of network schedules from order placement through reporting and affidavit for radio groups.

Since its release in March 2011, Network Connect has proven to minimize network spot makegoods by eliminating the manual work of entering network orders into the station traffic system and by electronically returning exact spot times to the networks for improved performance and reporting to network advertisers. Prior to Network Connect, orders, copy instructions and revisions related to fulfilling network contracts have been a complex process that cost radio stations an enormous amount of manpower, time and makegoods. Network Connect addresses these challenges and is exclusively available from Marketron.

"We are pleased to work with Marketron to bring this solution to our network and affiliate partners. Each year, our affiliates air hundreds of network spots and the Premiere connection to Mediascape brings a more efficient workflow that has enormous value for our affiliate stations and our advertisers," said Meg Montury, Premiere Networks Sr. Vice President of Sales Operations.

"We are so pleased to have Premiere Networks participate in the Mediascape platform," said Jeff Haley, President and CEO of Marketron. "This integration is proof positive of the success of this offering and the value it provides. Network Connect exemplifies Marketron's commitment to delivering services that help our clients drive top-line revenue, improve efficiencies and increase openness and connectivity with value-added partners and systems. As network is an important and growing aspect of many of our clients' businesses, the Network Connect capability and proven value proposition associated with it is critical and can only be provided by Marketron."
