AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Emmy and Peabody award winner Lars Larson has signed on with Audingo, pioneer of an audio-visual social media platform offering mobile users an unprecedented level of personalized interaction with public personalities and organizations, the company today announced. The new technology will allow The Lars Larson Show host to more intimately interact with his supporters through a phone call, text, email or video at a time designated by the subscriber.
Recently, Host of The Weekly Top 40 Countdown Rick Dees also began using the Audingo platform. The Company's growth is being fueled by a $3 million funding from angel investors, which is enabling Audingo to make its unique platform available for use by personalities, organizations and their fans nationwide – in the world of TV & radio and beyond.
"There is something singularly unique about the human voice," said Audingo Founder and CEO Michael Boukadakis, who is also a voice processing and IVR expert. "Audingo is aiming to lead the evolution of social media, facilitating interactions that reflect our natural instinct to talk out loud with whom we're communicating."
Celebrities and organizations regularly seek out ways to more deeply engage supporters. Larson, who has picked up more than 70 awards from the Associated Press, Society of Professional Journalists, and the National Press Club for his radio & television reporting and documentaries, is no different: he is endeavoring to more intimately, consistently communicate with his fans using Audingo.
"I recognize that I wouldn't be where I am today without the support of my devoted listeners," said Larson. "Audingo finally makes it possible for me to reciprocate by creating an inner circle of my biggest fans who can hear from me personally, consistently."
Larson added, "I love being able to speak to my fans, but what I love even more is that now they have the ability to respond to me. Audingo lets my fans do the talking – they can directly reach out to me on the spot in response to my voice and video Audingos."
Audingo offers subscribers the ability to join in on a conversation with Larson by utilizing the "talk back" feature.
