A few weeks ago Sunday Night Slow Jams creator/host R Dub! went into ABC’s Shark Tank looking for a $75,000 investment. Unfortunately Dub! not only left without the investment but he also bore the brunt of a Mark Cuban smack down of radio syndication. It seems that episode is turning out to have a much happier ending. Bakersfield, CA-based Jackson and Associates Law Centers has offered the Benztown syndicated Sunday Night Slow Jams a $75,00 one-year digital sponsorship deal. The law firm will sponsor the show’s digital initiatives for one year, including slowjams.com, the launch of the new Slow Jams app, Slow Jams streaming and social media platforms, texting campaigns, dedication and request telephone lines and digital contest submissions.
Steve Thompson, Firm Administrator/Attorney for Jackson and Associates commented on his company’s offer saying, “We’ve been fans of R Dub! and Sunday Night Slow Jams for some time now. After seeing him on Shark Tank, the staff and I got together and realized Slow Jams would be the perfect medium to deliver our message to potential new clients.”
Sunday Night Slow Jams host and President of Fusion Radio Networks, R Dub! said, “Being one of 40,000 applicants to appear on Shark Tank was a dream come true for me! The opportunity to market the Slow Jams brand to 6.5 million potential new customers and meet the Sharks while appearing on one of my favorite television shows was one of the best experiences of my life. I’m so happy that the folks at Jackson and Associates understand the value of the Slow Jams brand and community of listeners across America, and the power and effectiveness of radio.
Sunday Night Slow Jams also welcomed new affiliates following R Dub!’s appearance on Shark Tank including: KKWD Oklahoma City, WWZY Jersey Shore and KKBB Bakersfield.
