WTBI winner Songboarding.com produces video on coronavirus safety measures

The winner of the recent “What’s the Big Idea 48-Hour Pitch Competition” is out with a new safety video focused on the coronavirus and a reminder of ways that individuals can help protect themselves.

Mike Benn founded Songboarding.com to produce alternatives to the traditional and some might say boring instructional videos that companies use.
