BEASLEY MEDIA GROUP LAS VEGAS and D&C ENTERTAINMENT have joined to create the BEASLEY MEDIA/COX BUSINESS BROADCASTING STUDIO in LAS VEGAS' Downtown Container Park. It's the first andonly radio broadcasting studio in the CONTAINER PARK, an open-air shopping center and entertainment venue featuring close to 40 shops, restaurants and bars.
BEASLEY MEDIA GROUP VP/Market Manager TOM HUMM and D&C ENTERTAINMENT Co-Owners DAVE CARNEY and CHAD FORSTER recognized the value in creating a visual and interactive location for not only live radio broadcasts, but also interviews with entertainers, celebrities and local dignitaries. The space was selected for its close proximity to the stage. With COX BUSINESS serving as studio sponsor, construction began last month and completion is expected in early APRIL.
The fully functional radio broadcasting studio will feature state-of-the-art broadcasting equipment from THE WHEATSTONE COMPANY. The CONTAINER PARK’s inaugural year brought in more than one million visitors and welcomed artists such as SHERYL CROW, CULTS and CAYUCAS.
“We envision bringing and supporting live events at the Downtown CONTAINER PARK,” said HUMM. “Through our five radio stations, BEASLEY MEDIA GROUP LAS VEGAS reaches over 1 million local residents weekly. There’s a terrific synergy between our audience, D&C ENTERTAINMENT’s ideas and the size and popularity of Downtown CONTAINER PARK. We’re confident that once completed, our radio broadcasting facility will be a major highlight to the downtown area. In radio, it’s all about the community. What better way to entertain and serve our community than through a visible, completely functioning radio studio in the Downtown CONTAINER PARK? We can hardly wait for our first live broadcast!”
Added COX BUSINESS/HOSPITALITY NETWORK VP DERRICK R. HILL: “We’re very excited about the vitality and energy of this strategic partnership, which puts us physically closer to the revitalization of Downtown LAS VEGAS and allows us to engage with our audiences in many new and exciting ways."
