Look out NASDAQ!

May 2nd, 2014 by Rosie Amodio

Today the Viggle team — led by Chairman + CEO Robert F.X. Sillerman, President Greg Consiglio, CFO John Small, and celebrity guest and Real Housewives of New York star Heather Thomson — rang the opening bell of the NASDAQ. The group assembled in the Times Square headquarters to count down to the start of the day’s trading.

Just prior to the opening, Sillerman, quoting Muhammad Ali’s “Me? We!” poem, gave a shout-out to the Viggle, Inc. team by acknowledging the team’s contributions to the company’s success. Coincidentally, Sillerman once owned the commercial rights to Ali.

Here’s a direct link to the 10-second countdown video posted to NASDAQ’s Facebook page.
