The TV series Jersey Shore licensed ITG’s curated license music collection for six seasons of MTV Network’s most viewed series telecast ever.
“We consider ourselves very lucky—we get to collaborate with producers, networks, brand marketers and partner companies based in major markets all over the world, even though we’re headquartered in Minneapolis,” said Drew. “The ITG brand is our people, our talent, and our resources, and we’ve realized that our unique energy and inherent customer service is our differentiation. We are passionate about everything we do, and we’re very grateful to be marking our 15 year anniversary milestone.”
