ACINA, Ltd., publishers of INSURANCE-LETTER, announced today that all existing and new corporate services will be re-branded under the InsuranceBroadcasting.Com label effective Monday, 05/19/03, and INSURANCE-LETTER will be renamed Insurance Newscast, and continue with no subscription charges.
"If people are interested in seeing how media companies will be structured in this century, I invite them to take a peek behind the curtain at www.InsuranceBroadcasting.Com" said Walter B. Podgurski, CLU, CES, and Chairman and CEO of InsuranceBroadcasting.Com.
"Even though the site does not officially open until Monday, and the programmers are most likely tweaking even as this is being read, readers of this newsletter may see first-hand the tremendous implications of an entire industry with the resources of the insurance industry participating in an "open-architecture" resource."
"InsuranceBroadcasting.Com will help revolutionize the way insurance information is acquired, shared and communicated" commented Mr. Podgurski. "The leverage of "open architecture" combined with emerging technology and our new database driven website design, will accommodate the explosive growth of insurance related digital content and provide the means to organize the submissions received by the insurance community into the best categories and sub-categories, and continuously re-organize and improve them based on collective input."
"Factors driving the growth of the project include: an existing base of 100,000+ daily insurance industry viewers, a platform built with populated content and design from users, absolutely no cost to the users or the organizations listed, and the most current digital communication technology available. A White Paper will be available next week to interested parties, and links to populate the pages may be submitted beginning on Monday, May 19."
"The services at InsuranceBroadcasting.Com and corresponding benefits will become apparent as we move forward. Big ideas have a small beginning. So it is with the launch of www.InsuranceBroadcasting.Com. This concept is the logical extension of our INSURANCE NEWSCAST Newsletter and consistent with our original insurance-portal website goals. Our vision has always been to revolutionize the way insurance information is acquired, shared and communicated. We hope the industry will find www.InsuranceBroadcasting.Com a valuable tool for online work and digital communications with others in the insurance industry." (Note: the www.InsuranceBroadcasting.Com and www.InsuranceWebPortal.com websites are one and the same.)
