RAIN 5/24: RadioIO parent company revenues up over 60% in Q1
NUMBERS DON’T INCLUDE NEW REVENUE FROM BUBBA THE LOVE SPONGE SUBSCRIBERSIO World Media, the company behind RadioIO and Bubba the Love Sponge’s new online efforts (RAIN coverage here) reports that their Q1 revenues rose 61.4% to $293,000. The company posted a net loss of $248,000, up from a loss of $232,000 in Q1 of 2010.
However, those numbers don’t include revenues from Bubba the Love Sponge’s launch on RadioIO, due to accounting principles. Bubba’s February subscription promotion earned the company nearly $1 million in discounted subscription revenues (RAIN coverage here).
