First, because I get so most spam from job postings, please include the answer to this math problem at the beginning of your response, so i know you read it. 9(7+4)=
WHAT’S OUR 5-10 WORD CONCEPT?
Sports fans make the call and broadcasters are muted
WHAT’S THE STORY & MISSION OF THE COMPANY?
I couldn't take it anymore... talking heads droning on and on during games. So, I decided to make it stop.
Our mission is to let sports fans decide. Fans make the call. Never watch sports the same way again… now there are options.
LetMeHearYa enables user generated sports broadcasting. Fans create live commentary alongside their favorite sporting events on TV. Our system enables anyone to broadcast their own opinions and perspectives to listeners, who can choose to listen to any number of broadcasters, based on their specific entertainment tastes. LetMeHearYa is the perfect "second screen" companion for live sports on TV.

We raised a 6-figure seed round to get to market.
