ATLANTA, GA… VoiceNation, the industry leader in live answering and virtual receptionist services, supported 15,000 calls to the “Atone Phone” hotline number for Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” during the Ten Days of Repentance between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
For the seventh consecutive year, VoiceNation has been called upon by Comedy Central producers of “The Colbert Report” to provide the hotline. Stephen Colbert, host of the show, recognizes the Jewish High Holy Days by giving his viewers an opportunity to apologize to him personally by calling the Atone Phone hotline during the Ten Days of Repentance. The Atone Phone number is 1-888-OOPS-JEW, which is a working toll free number, supported by VoiceNation.
Callers who dial in are greeted by a personal pre-recorded message from Stephen Colbert, asking them to leave their apology to him stating how they have wronged him in the previous year. A handful of these atonement messages are then aired on the show.
Producers of the show selected VoiceNation for their ability to handle high call volumes associated with TV and radio spots. VoiceNation’s proprietary technology allows the hotline to take thousands of calls and voice messages, and essentially handle 40,000 Colbert fans within a very short time period.
