We believe that this will result in a whole new family of services for delivering entertainment over the telephone."

Gedaliah Gurfein, CEO of ZOW, underscored, "We have already been overwhelmed with the content owners' desire to create new revenue and exposure inside this exploding new medium. And telecom views us as a 'knight in shining armor' because of the millions of minutes we drive their way. The bottom line is that people love ZOW's Telephone Shows. They're fun, cool and easy."
