"I fundamentally believe in the importance of local media as a cornerstone of our communities. Whether to check the local news, traffic, sports or weather, the first thing many consumers reach for in the morning is their mobile phone," said Gump. "LSN Mobile has already created a solid offering to serve these consumers. We will build on this foundation to continue to provide unique ways for local media and advertisers to engage consumers on their mobile devices, in the process demonstrating the power of local mobile media."

"I have known Lee for years and have admired what LSN Mobile has created. From time to time, we have looked for ways to work together so it is a privilege to embark on this new journey during such an important time."
