Kolonia, Pohnpei, Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) and San Francisco, Calif., April 6, 1998 -- FSM Telecom Corp., the Internet Service Provider (ISP) for the FSM, and BRS Media, a recognized leader in strategic online programming for Radio on the Internet, today announced an exclusive partnership to begin registering and marketing the premium top-level domain [.fm] to the broadcasting industry.

"When we launched our Internet Service a year ago, we realized the potential of the [.fm] domain for FM Radio Stations," said Robert Blissmer, Marketing Coordinator at FSM Telecom Corp. "But we're a small company in a small country and we wanted some US-based expertise to help us market [.fm] as a premium domain." Blissmer adds, "But anyone, not just radio stations, can register a premium [.fm] domain name on a first-come, first-served basis."

George Bundy, President of BRS Media remarked, "We're extremely excited about our partnership with FSM to make "dotFM" available to broadcasters all over the world. dotFM will provide industry association and branding to assist with a stations over all marketing campaign both On Air & Online." Bundy adds, " dotFM will change the way Radio dots the Internet."

BRS Media will begin registering premium dotFM domain names today both online and at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) annual convention at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, booth I-12425. Visitors to BRS Media's booth will be able to register a premium dotFM domain on the spot.
