VNUE And NEWHD Media Partner To Launch New Online Radio Station
NEW YORK, April 9, 2021 -- Building upon its strategic relationship with NEWHD Media, VNUE, Inc. (OTC: VNUE) announced today that the company was partnering with NEWHD to launch a brand new online radio station, VNUE Radio.
The station, which will be available through iOS and and Android apps, as well as online, will feature a host of unique programming, including unique content, exclusive interviews, and music ranging from up-and-coming indie artists to the hitmakers.
VNUE Radio will be operated and managed by NewHD CEO Zach Martin, who is a longtime and well-known rock radio personality based in New York. VNUE Radio will also partner with Martin's charity, St. Sophia's, which is a 501c3 that helps to develop opportunities for people living with additional needs, including autism and HIV.
Additionally, VNUE will be working with both past and present artist clients to add exclusive live content from set.fm and DiscLive, and will leverage its other relationships to identify and curate music that will be of interest across what the company expects to be a broad national and international listener base.
The station should be fully launched by May 1st, and eventually VNUE and NEWHD will look to potentially acquire signals.
As previously announced, the two companies are already working together to enable VNUE's Soundstr technology on NewHD's existing stations, so that accurate music play reporting may be leveraged to reduce licensing costs to NEWHD's radio stations, and also to increase transparency to all stakeholders. VNUE will of course leverage Soundstr for use on its own station.
NEWHD and Martin maintain viable relationships with many of the world's greatest talent, including the Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, and many of today's artists on major and independent labels, and VNUE expects to tap this relationship for content on VNUE Radio.
"This is yet another step in the evolution of VNUE as a true multimedia company, and technology leader, integrating our various core competencies to roll out compelling and related new product offerings that benefit artists and fans alike. I'm very excited to be working with Zach [Martin] in this capacity, and I have no doubt that this new station will be a wild success."
