Going Up: Rapid Digital Solutions Invited to Google Elevator

chris hornick(Dallas, TX) – Rapid Digital Solutions, subsidiary of HomeSlice Media, has been invited to participate in Google Elevator, a premier business acceleration training session that is available only to a select group of badged Google Partner agencies.

Rapid Digital solutions is excited to announce that our Director of Digital Media, Chris Hornick, is one of only 30 people nationwide to participate in September’s Elevator session, with only six sessions being held this year. While in Dallas, Hornick will have the opportunity to hear from Google’s business experts and receive training on strategic planning and sales, followed by months of individualized one-on-one business coaching.

“Staying on top of digital trends can be difficult; having a partnership with Google helps give us a clear vision on how we can best serve our customers. Advanced digital classes based on strategy and not the day-to-day technical aspects are rare to find, so being invited into the program is really exciting,” said Hornick.

HomeSlice Vice President of Broadcast, MaryAnne Whittle, added, “We are excited for what this exclusive training means for Rapid Digital Solutions, and especially what it will mean for our clients. We are constantly striving to stay on the cutting edge of the ever-changing media landscape. This training will help further our goals as a company and the individual goals of our clients, so that we can continue serving them to the absolute best of our ability.”

Thursday, March 1st, KKLS Radio officially becomes, “KKLS NEWS CORP 920 and 104-7.”

HomeSlice Media announced today that they will be moving one of Rapid City’s longtime radio stations into a new phase of existence. As of today, KKLS has switched to KKLS News Corp, with a focus on heightening the station’s level of community service and action.

KKLS will work to cover the important news and information happening day-to-day and hour-by-hour in the community; digging for the extra information you need to know, with a special focus on the many people working hard to make the Black Hills region the best it can be: educators, law enforcement members, medical practitioners and providers, craftspeople and master mechanics, to artists and performers—plus the countless groups and organizations that work year-round to provide events for the people of the Black Hills.

The new format will also provide national talk shows, featuring many noted leaders in their areas of expertise: long-term news professionals Chris Plante in the morning and Joe Pagliarulo at night, attorney Mark Levin, for opinions on constitutional law, Dave Ramsey, helping thousands of households find their way to debt freedom, as well as a number of interesting lifestyle and newsmagazine shows on the weekend.

KKLS News Talk Radio is here.
