Triton Digital announces a free application for radio stations that enables listeners with smartphones to "check in" to their favorite local radio stations – rather than calling in – to enter contests. The application is available for download at no cost for iPhone and Android mobile devices and includes sign-on capability via Facebook. After registering their station, broadcasters simply announce their contest on the air as usual, but ask listeners to "check in" via the smartphone interface within a specified time period to be automatically entered into the contest. The app has an intuitive user interface and GPS-based location awareness that automatically pulls up stations in the listeners’ current area. Stations can access the intuitive back-end interface to monitor check ins and select winners.

Bertelsmann AG appoints CFO Thomas Rabe as its future Chairman/CEO. Rabe will succeed current Chairman/CEO Hartmut Ostrowski as of January 1, 2012.

Steve Reynolds, President of The Reynolds Group, will host a free webinar tomorrow (10/12) on "creative strategic visions for Morning Shows." The webinar will take place at 1 p.m. ET and registration is available at www.reynoldsgroupradio.com.
