DENVER â€“ Voice Media Group (VMG) today announced a strategic data syndication partnership with Foursquare. Over the coming weeks, VMGâ€™s Voice Places event data will be syndicated on Foursquare for more than fifty categories in eleven markets, enabling the Foursquare community to check into events, explore trending events, and find nearby events in those cities. Voice Media Group will also provide its well-respected “Best Of” content to Foursquare in those eleven markets, as well as awarding city-specific, leveled badges based on â€œBest Ofâ€ check-ins.
â€œContent is king, and we feel that we have the best, most trusted, professionally curated local content in the country,â€ said Scott Tobias, CEO of Voice Media Group. â€œWe are excited about this partnership with Foursquare, and we feel that it showcases the depth of our content across key verticals.â€
