JANUARY 6, 2009 - Crisp Wireless, the leading provider of mobile publishing and advertising solutions for premium media and entertainment companies, announced today that it has added Pro Football Weekly, providers of the best coverage in the NFL, to its growing roster of premier publishers. The mobile site, http://m.profootballweekly.com, created by Crisp Wireless, launched today during the 2009 NFL Playoffs.
The Pro Football Weekly mobile site features the industry-leading content PFW has been delivering for more than 40 years in print, through radio/television programming and online at profootballweekly.com. This new mobile site will be an extension of that sphere of information, including the most recent NFL headlines, behind-the-scenes reports on trends and rumors around the league, in-depth game previews and predictions, and expert analysis for fantasy football players. The mobile site also will feature top blogs including Around the NFL, Road to the Draft, Super Bowl XLIII, Finding Paydirt (fantasy football) and Covering the Spread (handicapping). Content on the mobile site is updated regularly, guaranteeing the most up-to-date football information for fans leading up to Super Bowl XLIII and kicking off the 2009 season with the NFL Draft.
In addition to building and powering the mobile site, Crisp Wireless will provide mobile ad serving, campaign management and supplemental ad sales support to maximize Pro Football Weekly’s mobile advertising revenue.
