SPT Ad Sales, with headquarters in New York and teams in Chicago and Los Angeles, will  expand the exposure of RMG’s 200+ hours of popular, original programming to major national advertising agencies and their clients. RMG’s programming is currently distributed to over 63-million television homes and 25-million satellite radio subscribers.

SPT’s experience and organization will add tremendous value to RMG’s advertising sales efforts, and build on the success of the large and growing audience, for both our television and radio properties.”
