COSTA MESA, Calif. – JANUARY 22, 2019 – Veritone Inc. (NASDAQ: VERI), the creator of the world’s first operating system for artificial intelligence, aiWARE™, today announced a renewed and expanded multi-market licensing agreement with Beasley Media Group.

The agreement doubles the number of stations using aiWARE to 28, across six markets, including new markets such as Detroit, Las Vegas, and Tampa.

“Veritone developed aiWARE so that organizations in virtually any industry can easily take advantage of the power of artificial intelligence,” said Ryan Steelberg, Co-Founder and President of Veritone. “Media broadcasters were the first industry segment to adopt aiWARE and we’re thrilled that radio station groups of all sizes are experiencing great success and operational efficiencies by using our AI platform. Their advertising customers benefit from new insights and campaign performance analytics similar to those in digital media, enabling budget and campaign optimization in whole new ways. It’s a win-win situation for both radio stations and advertisers.”
