Ep.47: Kevin King from Feed.fm (DMT 1-2-1)

This week on the DMT 1-2-1 an interview with Kevin King, director of business development at Feed.fm. The company is an internet radio solution for brands and business providing them with licensed, legal content. Operating in the US only for now the company has already worked with the likes of Bud Light, McDonald’s, Double Cross Vodka as well as a myriad of smaller companies (plans for use of the platform start at $25 per month). It’s an interesting solution and a very informative chat with Kevin here.

I really hope you enjoy the show, have a great week and ’till next time!

Best,

Andrea Leonelli
