“Ever since my early days in radio, the ReelWorld brand has always been associated with attention grabbing audio, high quality production values and innovative imaging. It is a company that’d never failed to get me excited about radio and to be heading up the new look European operation is a massive honor for me and I’m excited about our plans for 2012”, said Anthony. “It’s really about much more then jingles and that innovation and creativity is something I am thrilled to be driving.”
