Marking the beginning of its ambitious plans, this business division will take Big Net Radio beyond talk, penetrating various facets of people‘s lives via local and regional music playouts, thereby encouraging local talent and serving hyper-local tastes.

RBN will promote the offering across the media vehicles, including radio, outdoor, and below the line.
