PRESS RELEASE · Helsinki, Finland ·
Today, Bauer Media Audio with AdsWizz, the leading global technology provider for digital audio advertising solutions, have agreed to work together to sell audio advertising in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden on Soundcloud - the next generation music entertainment company.
