Why did Chris and company choose the name Hindenburg for their ground-breaking software?

This is the one question that they are almost always asked. And here is their answer:

In 1937, Chicago reporter Herbert Morrison witnessed The Hindenburg Disaster. The German passenger airship, the LZ 129 Hindenburg, caught fire and crashed while attempting to dock at the Lakehurst Naval Air Station located in Manchester, New Jersey. Covering the tragic accident, Mr. Morrison created radio history as he gave the world’s first eyewitness news report and made audio history and became the prototype for news broadcasting.

His professional response and accurate descriptions combined with very emotional response to this unexpected disaster have made the recordings a seminal moment in audio history.

The Hindenburg Disaster was a tragedy, but it marked the birth of mobile reporting and expanded the possibilities for global communication.

“At Hindenburg, we are dedicated to supporting the production of great radio stories, and this is why we pay homage to the Hindenburg Disaster.”   Chris Mottes, CEO

We at Chanticleer Reviews are honored to have Hindenburg Systems sponsor the Chanticleer International Book Awards and the 2019 Chanticleer Authors Conference.
