WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwire - March 23, 2009) - OMT (TSX VENTURE:OMT)is pleased to announce that Mid-West Family Broadcasting has purchased OMT's iMediaTouch radio automation system for a total of 18 radio stations. Mid-West Family Broadcasting currently owns 29 stations throughout Michigan, Wisconsin and Illinois. The company purchased iMediaTouch for their La Crosse, WI, Madison, WI, and Springfield, MO markets.

"We were faced with making a major upgrade to our broadcast automation system and decided to look at what the industry had to offer," commented John Bauer, Corporate Chief Engineer for Mid-West Family Broadcasting. "Through a joint programming and engineering search we identified iMediaTouch. iMediaTouch offered the features programming wanted, a clean intuitive interface, ease of importing audio, straight forward programming, and no new editing software to learn. Engineering was impressed with the straight forward approach to automation, the support of industry standard hardware, and the support for exporting data to RBDS, HD PAD, and electronic billboards. The implementation phase was seamless thanks to Media Touch's outstanding on site training and outstanding technical support."

"I have personally visited both their Madison and La Crosse, WI operations and was tremendously impressed with their state-of-the-art studios, overall radio operations and extremely talented people in programming, IT and engineering," commented Jackie Tetlock, Manager, Broadcast Sales & Marketing. "We are delighted they chose iMediaTouch as their automation system."
