I am a big fan of Liberated Syndication (AKA libsyn)… while far from perfect, the guys that run this company provide a great set of services for podcasters. They’re now finally going to be able to devote full time energy to the company… I think that will be great for everyone involved. Check out their announcement:
Dear libsyn users,
It’s been a while since we’ve written, hope you all have been well. Last October we announced that we were becoming a public company. That move is now complete as we have merged Webmayhem Inc (the parent corporation of Liberated Syndication) with Wizzard Software Inc (OTCBB:WIZD) and formed Wizzard Media in the process. We wanted to explain what this all means to you.
The great news is, libsyn is here to stay and is only going to get better. We have now an even stronger foundation, and in addition to providing funding and corporate infrastructure, Wizzard Software brings some pretty exciting things to Podcasting, and in turn, to you the libsyn user. Wizzard is bringing a decade of industry leading experience in voice technology- that’s voice to text and text to voice. There are lots of cool things we can do with this technology. A press release was issued this morning announcing the deal- (http://www.wizzard.tv/press_mar_01_2007.php).
The best news for everyone is that the days of 4 guys with day jobs trying to run a podcasting company on the side are over- we are 120% committed to nothing but libsyn now, and our team continues to grow. Yesterday, we (re)launched the Libsyn Soundoff- (http://soundoff.libsyn.com) our blog/podcast which will be updated daily to provide everyone an inside look on the goings on at libsyn HQ. Part of the show will be technical, part will be feedback and ideation on the upcoming libsyn developments. Our launch episode was yesterday– we wanted to talk about this deal, but without doing the public press release we had to hold our tongues. This will all take some getting used to, but it will be worth it. We’ll talk a bit about it today.
All in all, we’d like to thank you for your continued support and for being part of the history of libsyn. You have helped us build this network. We look forward to the exciting years ahead.
the libsyn squad.
