R Dub!'s Sunday Night Slow Jams Picks Up Advertiser Thanks To Shark Tank
October 22, 2013
Benztown Radio Networks announces that R Dub!'s syndicated Sunday Night Slow Jams has a major new sponsor: legal services firm Jackson and Associates Law Centers. The advertiser came aboard as a result of the show’s exposure on the October 11 episode of the ABC series Shark Tank. (Read about R Dub!'s appearance on Shark Tankhere.) Bakersfield-based Jackson and Associates contacted R Dub! the Monday after the Shark Tank episode aired, and signed a one-year digital sponsorship deal for $75,000 last Friday.
Jackson and Associates will sponsor Sunday Night Slow Jams’ digital initiatives for one year, including www.slowjams.com, the launch of the new Slow Jams App, Slow Jams’ streaming and social media platforms, texting campaigns and dedication and request telephone lines and digital entry submissions.
Sunday Night Slow Jams also welcomed aboard a number of new affiliates in the week following R Dub’s Shark Tank appearance, including Rhythmic CHR KKWD/Oklahoma City; Hot AC WWZY/Monmouth-Ocean and Rhythmic AC KKBB/Bakersfield.
R Dub! commented, "Being one of 40,000 applicants to appear on Shark Tank was a dream come true for me! The opportunity to market the Slow Jams brand to 6.5 million potential new customers and meet the Sharks while appearing on one of my favorite television shows was one of the best experiences of my life. I’m so happy that the folks at Jackson and Associates understand the value of the Slow Jams brand and community of listeners across America-- and the power and effectiveness of radio. I’m also thrilled to welcome these great new affiliates to the Slow Jams family. I’d like to thank all of our radio station affiliates and program directors, my partners at Benztown and Compass Media, and our listeners, whose belief in the show makes Slow Jams successful, book after book."
Steven Thompson, Firm Administrator/Attorney for Jackson and Associates, added, "We’ve been fans of R Dub! and Sunday Night Slow Jams for some time now. After seeing him on Shark Tank, the staff and I got together and realized Slow Jams would be the perfect medium to deliver our message to potential new clients."
