Customer Testimonial (David Hudson)

If not for Nextkast, I would’ve given up on Internet Radio long ago. I run two stations. One with NK Broadcast, and the other with NK Pro. Nextkast is amazing… from automation to reports. You can run it in full automation or live assist. Voice Tracking or mobile voice tracking, your choice. Insert sweeps, drops and commercials with ease. I’ve said it before I wish Nextkast was available back in the 70s/80s. My broadcast career would’ve been much smoother. I can’t say enough good things about it… It’s great!!!
