Founders

Mark Cuban, President and Co-founder

Mark Cuban

Mark Cuban's passion for sports and technology, coupled with his entrepreneurial spirit and experience in the technology industry, inspired him to co-found broadcast.com (formerly AudioNet ) in 1995. Today, Cuban provides the visionary leadership necessary to develop the Internet into the broadcast medium of the future, in the spirit of traditional radio and television. broadcast.com currently ranks 11th of all news information and entertainment sites on the Web, drawing a larger audience than leading destinations such as NBC.com, MTV.com, Sportsline USA and NYTimes.com.

In 1983, Cuban founded MicroSolutions and developed it into one of the leading systems integration firms in the U.S. MicroSolutions was ranked in the top 20 of the LAN 100 and included in Inc. Magazine's list of the top 500 fastest growing privately held companies. Cuban sold MicroSolutions to CompuServe in 1990 and later became president of Radical Computing, a venture capital and investment company specializing in high technology companies.

Cuban's charisma and in-depth knowledge of technology has made him a leader in the industry. He has spoken at several leading industry events, including Comdex, Networld/Interop, Internet World and NAB/Multimedia World, has appeared on CNBC and CNNfn, and been featured in leading business magazines including Forbes, Business Week, and the Wall Street Journal.

Todd Wagner co-founded broadcast.com (formerly AudioNet) in September of 1995, and in less than three years has led The Broadcast Network on the Internet from 3 employees with one PC in a bedroom to over 200 employees in a 30,000 square-foot facility in Dallas, Texas. Through Wagner's leadership and management skills, broadcast.com has become the leading aggregator and broadcaster of streaming media programming on the Web.

As CEO, he has negotiated and secured important strategic, financial and distribution partnerships with leading companies including Microsoft, Intel, Motorola, Yahoo! and RealNetworks.
