Chalk Signs Agreement with Fortune 100 Telecommunications Provider

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 9, 2008) - Chalk Media Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CKM) today announced that it has signed a software licensing agreement for Mobile chalkboard™ with one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world. The carrier has millions of customers across the United States, including all of the Fortune 1000 companies.

Mobile chalkboard™, Chalk's BlackBerry® communication software, will initially be used by the carrier's mobile consultants who develop mobile strategies for the Fortune 1000 accounts. These consultants will be using Mobile chalkboard™ to wirelessly distribute audio and video based podcasts to their BlackBerry devices. Additionally, they will be using Chalk's software to deliver training and share knowledge.

"We are excited to sign this deal with one of RIM's largest carrier partners and one of the largest resellers of BlackBerry devices worldwide", said Stewart Walchli, President & CEO of Chalk. "Moreover, this deal creates tremendous leverage by getting our software not just in the hands of our customer, but also in front of our customer's customers."

"We have already gained tremendous traction with several other telecommunications companies as a result of this deal," Mr. Walchli explained. "This validates our strategy of first licensing our software to those organizations that are leaders in our targeted industry verticals and securing them as referenceable accounts."

"The initial deployment of our software is to a very elite and influential group within this carrier," Mr. Walchli continued. "By winning this competitive bid, we believe that we are very well positioned to sell additional licenses to this carrier for the 100,000+ mobile devices that it has deployed across its organization."
