KS Radio: Envision Broadcast Merges With Rocking M Media

Envision has announced a merger between the Envision Broadcast Network and Rocking M Media, LLC, a Manhattan, Kan.-based media company.

The Envision Broadcast Network was formed in October 2014 when Envision acquired KKGQ 92.3 FM Q92 the Beat in Wichita. Envision’s desire to continue to grow and expand employment opportunities in the radio industry for people who are blind or visually impaired led to the merger, which represents a collaboration of ideals between Q92 and Rocking M Media.

“Having already employed individuals with vision loss at some of its existing stations, Rocking M Media shares Envision’s belief that people with all abilities should have access to meaningful career paths,” said Heather Hogan, Envision’s senior vice president of Foundation and Mission Services. “We’re proud of our successes with the Envision Broadcast Network and Q92. The fact that we found a radio group with the capacity to carry out our objectives on a much wider scale will propel our mission forward.”

“All it took was one visit to Envision for us to know the Envision Broadcast Network was something special,” said Christopher Miller, Rocking M Media president. “We are proud to work with Envision to build awareness and opportunity for a cause that deserves the highest level of visibility.”

Q92’s current on-air personalities who are blind or visually impaired will be brought into the Rocking M Media family. In addition, Rocking M Media will collaborate with Envision to take the Envision Broadcast Academy model to its entire multistate listening area. The Envision Broadcast Academy is a hands-on training program intended to equip youth and adults with vision loss with the skills and encouragement they need to explore high-tech careers in the radio industry.
