Vegas Stats & Information Network, the first media network dedicated to sports betting information, today named media industry veteran Dan Mason as the company's Chairman. Formerly President and CEO of CBS Radio, one of the most powerful radio conglomerates in the U.S., Mason will work closely with VSiN's management team to capitalize on the emerging growth and partnership opportunities in the sports betting and media space.

"There are few media executives with both the experience and reputation that Dan brings to the table," said VSiN founder and CEO Brian Musburger. "He's already brought invaluable guidance to our team as a senior adviser and investor, and we look forward to having even greater access to his unmatched depth of knowledge and relationships in this industry. We're thrilled to work even more closely with this consummate leader and better leverage his C-level expertise to build on and accelerate the recent growth we are experiencing at VSiN."

"Brian and his team have caught lightning in a bottle here. Besides establishing itself on the satellite platform, recently extending its agreement with SiriusXM, VSiN has made tremendous inroads into the OTT space with Sling TV and fuboTV, as well as growing its own subscription offerings. We will now look to further expand our reach across video and audio channels, including terrestrial radio where sports have thrived for decades," commented Mason.

In more than 15 years as President and CEO of CBS Radio, Mason presided over all functions relating to more than 125 stations across 27 markets, including all of the Top 10, as well as the day-to-day operations of the division. Mason's growth strategy included creating and launching CBS Sports Radio, a 24 hour, seven-day-a-week lineup of national programming. The industry veteran was inducted into The National Radio Hall of Fame in 2015 upon his retirement from CBS Radio. He is currently Chairman of The Broadcasters Foundation of America, a charity based in New York that serves the television and radio industries.

The network recently extended its agreement with SiriusXM, where its sports betting content broadcasts 24/7 on a dedicated channel on SiriusXM radios (channel 204) and on the SiriusXM app. 100 terrestrial radio stations across the country, including 670 The Score in Chicago, 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston and KNBR the Sports Leader in San Francisco.
