VUHAUS has received a second-year grant from CORPORATION FOR PUBLIC BROADCASTING (CPB) for $430,000 to extend through AUGUST of this year.
VUHAUS received an initial $750,000 grant from CPB to support buildout of the platform, which aggregates music videos and streams live performances produced by the affiliated public radio stations. It has, so far, featured about 2,000 videos from roughly 900 artists and has fed 110 live webcasts.
The website has garnered over 435,000 pageviews and has seen month-over-month growth since launching. The site also gets 80% of video views, with the remainder coming from embeddable players on station websites.
The platform now includes nine affiliate stations: WXPN/PHILADELPHIA, WFUV/NEW YORK CITY, KCRW/LOS ANGELES, KUTX/AUSTIN, KEXP/SEATTLE, KTBG, KANSAS CITY, OPBMUSIC/PORTLAND, OR., KKXT/DALLAS and WEST VIRGINIA PUBLIC BROADCASTING’S “MOUNTAIN STAGE.”
