Nashville, TN (PRWEB) October 20, 2006 -–
Grammy winning record producer Charlie Peacock and Internet marketing veteran Bob Hutchins today announced their partnership in a new online company, Premium Digital Content (PDC). PDC will uniquely combine entertainment with the four primary consumer technology categories: HOME, PC, HANDHELD DEVICE, and CAR – each one corresponding to four branded and highly optimized “WatchListen” websites:
The PDC approach will enable millions of consumers to discover, use, and enjoy entertainment and technology at home, on the go, and in the car.
“I can't think of a more natural partnership than this one with Charlie Peacock, a musician and entertainment executive who has always been a leader in new technology and entertainment,” said Bob Hutchins, President/Owner of BuzzPlant, a multipurpose Internet marketing firm. “Connecting consumers with amazing entertainment as well as tech products and services for their home, PC, handheld device, and car is a mission we both strongly believe in.”
“I see the home, PC, handheld device, and car -- all of them as dynamic and ultimately inter-related delivery systems for entertainment. Bob Hutchins has the marketing skill to make this connection for online consumers early on, securing PDC’s future, as online sales and digital delivery continue to radically alter consumer behavior and needs,” said PDC partner Charlie Peacock.
“Billions of people rise every day looking for entertainment, information, products and services related to their home, PC, handheld, and car. We live in a time of phenomenal opportunity to reach entertainment and technology lovers anywhere and everywhere,” said Hutchins.
In addition to the leadership of Peacock and Hutchins, the partners have tapped Nick Purdy, President of On The Square Media as the Content & Strategy Chief for PDC. Purdy co-founded Paste Media Group, and was the founding publisher of the award-winning Paste magazine. Purdy’s passion for promoting the most admirable facets of popular culture makes him an ideal leader for this development role.
