If you’re one of the 20,000 folks who listen to either Bulldog Sports Radio or Rebel Sports Radio, you’re about to get a chance to show how knowledgeable you are.
Starting Tuesday, fans of each school can complete in the “Ultimate Fan Challenge” on either the Bulldog or Rebel Sports Radio apps (both are free and available on most every smartphone) by answering a series of trivia questions. Based on the number of questions answered correctly, competitors can earn badges that range from “Waterboy” to “Ultimate Rebel” or “Ultimate Bulldog.”
VSporto, the Ridgeland-based company that developed the radio programming about a year ago, has teamed with BankPlus to offer the Challenge.
The technology behind the Challenge is original to VSporto. The Click-To Anything advertising offers the company’s advertisers flexibility to create any number of interactive smart phone experiences for consumers.
Keith Jasper, who founded VSporto, called the technology groundbreaking. “This provides one of the most interactive consumer experiences ever and it’s a testament to the versatility of the VSporto platform,” he said in a press release.
BankPlus chief marketing and business development officer Rob Armour said the technology offers new ways for the bank to interact with customers and potential customers. “We’re pleased to partner with VSporto on this innovative way to engage sports fans across our state,” he said in a press release.
Each of the channels carries 24-hour coverage of Ole Miss and Mississippi State, with all-original programming featuring former athletes, media and fans.
UPDATE: I thought we had video of Jasper talking about his company. Turns out, we do. It’s from a couple months ago. Check it here.
