Here we are, on the doorstep of 2019 and Boise Idaho, one of America's fastest growing cities and the 94th largest market in the country, still does not have a radio station that appropriately represents the culture and music of one of the most popular formats in the country. Hip-Hop.

As the decision makers of the major corporate broadcast companies continue to age and lose touch with the music tastes of Millennial's and generation Z, change will NOT happen without your voice. 

Currently in Boise, we have abundance of radio stations broadcasting the same format (Country, Pop, Hot AC) many times playing the same records at the exact same time across multiple stations. Why? Because the (ageing) decision makers prioritize the all might dollar over giving their listeners what they really want to hear. 

I’ve worked in Broadcast Radio for 13 years. I still believe local radio has the power to inform, entertain, and enspire the community. But, the way radio stations are being programmed today is changing. Most companies have taken the power out of the programmers and listeners hands and placed it firmly at a corporate out of state level. These  corporate decision makers are usually out of the demo and have no idea about the lifestyle, tastes, or preferences of their target demo. 

The Hip-Hop format unequivocally dominates every format when it comes to consumption of the product and boasts the biggest superstars in the world. So why is this music not represents in Boise Idaho?

This must change! Don't we deserve a radio station that reflects us? Don't we deserve a radio station that actually "Sounds Like Boise"?
