The Station 514 Media Network is a community of radio stations, radio shows, and people all built around the same purpose and vision: to encourage and empower each other to find and live out our purpose in life. We believe in community and we believe that everyone wants to be a part of a community. We’re providing one right here centered around music, encouragement, empowerment, inspiration, and people.
The Station 514 Media Network began in 2010 as “Station 514″, an online rock radio station devoted to delivering positive rock and hard rock music. Well… the station was actually a variety format in the beginning. The station quickly evolved into a rock, alternative, and hip hop format. As our listenership grew, we also realized it was time to separate the rock from the hip hop. We re-branded “Station 514″ into “The Rock” and we launched “The Mixtape” in February of 2013 in an effort to reach our hip hop community and bring amazing positive hip hop and R&B to listeners since we’re one of the only ones doing it.
We decided it was time to form a Media Network in an effort to bring our two radio stations together under one vision and morph our radio shows into a podcast format, allowing for easy download and subscription to listen when was convenient. The Station 514 Media Network is just getting started. We have a plan to launch an alternative radio station in the near future and launch many more shows with an effort to build a community that will be encouraged and inspired.
Station 514 Media Network also hosts two specific shows available for podcast - "Organized Chaos" and "Backstage Pass". "Backstage Pass" is heard live on Thursdays on jamthehype.com at 5pm CST and replayed on Saturdays at 7pm CST as well as podcast.
