idobi Network signs with AdsWizz for exclusive monetization

The idobi network, a venerable streaming radio outlet which also produces podcasts and video, has deepened its relationship with digital audio ad-tech platform Adswizz. AdsWizz is now  the exclusive global monetization provider for advertisers seeking to reach idobi’s audience across the US and Europe.

The expanded agreement designates AdsWizz as the sole monetization provider for all of idobi’s inventory, leveraging the AdsWizz Marketplace, a global programmatic exchange for digital audio.

idobi started as an online radio pureplay station in 1999. It was the winner of RAIN’s Internet Radio Awards, Best Single Stream Webcaster, in 2014.

The company runs three stations: idobi radio (alt and pop-punk), idobi Howl (metal and hardcore) and idobi anthm (indie). The key demo engaged by idobi properties is an even gender split in the 13-34 age group.

AdsWizz Marketplace offers buyers nine-billion impressions served to 80-million unique listeners per month. Audience segment targeting includes geo, device type, genre, language, weather, demographic, and behavioral segments.

“Since 1999 idobi has cultivated an international community within the alternative music world. In that time the network has become more than music: idobi is now a lifestyle. Building on a consistently beneficial relationship with the AdsWizz team, who continues to revolutionize the audio advertising technology space, we look forward to expanded opportunities and growth via this new era in our relationship,” said Eddie Barella, COO & Program Director, idobi.

“This expanded agreement will enable us to help increase the monetization of idobi’s valuable inventory to the fullest extent and to do that for them globally. We are excited to continue working with them across countries such as the US, UK, Canada, Germany, and Brazil,” said Anne Frisbie, SVP Global Supply & Partnerships, AdsWizz.
