ComedyNet in radio pact

American Interactive will syndicate comedy programming

American Interactive Media has inked a deal with Dick Clark’s United Stations Radio Network to syndicate its online comedy programming broadcast through its 24-hour ComedyNet Web site to 2,500 stations affiliated with the radio broadcaster.

The one-year agreement, one of the few syndication deals involving Internet programming, calls for ComedyNet to provide USRN’s affiliates with access to its audio library in exchange for the radio syndication of live comedic performances to be broadcast on USRN’s affiliate stations.

In addition, syndication promotions also will be available for radio stations’ Web sites.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Platform portable

“Our goal is to create original high-quality programming on the Internet which can easily port to other platforms including broadcast, digital and analog cable, direct satellite and other emerging technologies,” said Mark Graff, prexy and CEO of AIME.

ComedyNet, launched in May, features video-on-demand performances by standup comics, as well as sketch, improv and other shortform programming produced in its studios and from various locations, including the top comedy clubs across America.
