 innovative online calendaring solutions, announced today that Oregon Public
 Broadcasting (OPB) has selected Trumba(R) Connect to power its online OPB
 Community Calendar. OPB is a not-for-profit, private, locally owned public
 broadcast network with Television, Radio and Internet services that reach
 1.5 million people every week across the state of Oregon and southwest
     Trumba Connect helps media and broadcast organizations like the OPB

 these organizations with their communities through a comprehensive suite of
 tools that includes a hosted, interactive Web calendar, event submission
 forms, and reporting services. Trumba Connect's innovative design allows
 for quick deployment of customer-branded event calendars that are rapidly
 adopted by community users because of an intuitive interface and
 interoperability with leading personal calendaring solutions.

 specific activities to their own personal Google(TM), MSN(R) Hotmail(R),
 AOL(R), Yahoo!(TM), Microsoft(R) Office Outlook(R) and Apple(R) iCal(R)

 Moreover, the OPB Calendar encourages individual visitors to submit their
 own events to the calendar, thus functioning as a two-way communication
 vehicle with the community.

 Community Calendar provides visitors with a comprehensive monthly view of
 various events happening across the state

 the last several months. With today's OPB win and the recent King 5
 deployment in Seattle, the broadcast media markets are heating up and have
 begun to increase their presence among our many print and online media
 customers," said Jeremy Jaech, CEO of Trumba. "Local public broadcasting
 organizations like the OPB are natural fits for Trumba Connect because
 their listeners and viewers naturally look to them for community
 information. We're looking forward to providing them with a better way to
 do just that."
