Atlanta, GA — October 1, 2007 — Thousands of calls once again flooded the phone of Stephen Colbert, comedian and host of Comedy Central’s hit television show, “The Colbert Report”, in September 2007. This is the second year VoiceNation has provided service for the show.
An estimated 40,000 calls were received the first night that Colbert advertised the number on September 26, 2006. Since then it has proven to be a very popular segment. So popular in fact, that they have reserved the number indefinitely.
The producers of the show contacted VoiceNation, an Atlanta provider of telecommunication services, because of their reputation for reliability and quality customer service. VoiceNation’s team configured the digital phone lines and built the necessary applications in less than two days and they have consistently provided flawless support for the thousands of simultaneous calls received to the show.
Colbert is not the only one benefiting from VoiceNation’s services. “We have years of experience handling large volumes of calls for television and radio shows such as the Steve Harvey Show,” said Jay Reeder, VoiceNation’s Chief Executive.
VoiceNation provides numbers for disaster recovery, radio contests, and talent show hotlines. R&B producer, Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins used their service for a music talent show hotline in 2005 called, “The Versatile USA Talent Show”.
