Vets take control with online radio station
Hello Military community,
I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Adam Bird, owner of Vets on Media Radio located in Arizona. Vets on Media, LLC is a veteran owned and operated media company founded in 2012 by Bird and James Fawbush, both combat veterans. This group of U.S. veterans started from humble beginnings at an AM/FM station that evolved out of necessity and the desire to have a more creative format than the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) would allow.
Vets on Media, reflects small town values with big-city production on a national level. They offer over a dozen unique radio brands that not only inform and entertain their listeners, but also make a difference in the community. Vets on Media programming is available via streaming over the internet and downloaded through the Apple iTunes Platform.
You can catch your choice of shows anytime at your convenience anywhere in the world via your laptop, desk top and smartphone. These programs are FREE with NO membership or Account required. Watch or listen in real time via Windows Media Player, Real Player, Quick Time, TuneIn Radio or MyRadioStream.
The DJ’s each have their own specific, vibrant personality and provide entertainment along with countless hours of informative, entertaining and intelligent talk, along with music, comedy, sports, business and community action radio. At present, they have 12 live shows a day and by the end of 2013 plan to offer 20 on-air programs that can be reached anywhere in the world on any mobile or tablet device.
Vets on Media is a broadcast media company for veterans, service members and their families. They specialize in intelligent, informative uncensored and uninterrupted entertainment radio. They strive to showcase the best up-and-coming artists, musicians, comedians and on air personalities today.
Vets on Media has an overall mission to provide quality entertainment to the veteran and service member community one relationship at a time. They seek to bridge the gap between the civilian and military community and they are doing that through not only radio programs but also through several non-profits that they work with locally and nationwide.
Wings for Warriors, Virginia G Piper (SPOFIT) and Mary Ellen’s Place are just a few of the non-profits they work closely with. Vets on Media is dedicated to helping those that need a hand up and pride themselves in working with smaller non-profits that do not have large operating costs like many of the better-known institutions. They offer live reads, promos, remote broadcasts and interviews to non-profits that mission aligns with that of Vets on Media.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to each of the DJ’s. I appreciate the straight forward talk and sharing of ideas along with the appreciation and respect of input from others and guests. This is a station I see going places and look forward to seeing where they stand in the future.
If Adam has his way “they will be putting other stations out of business.” This definitely is a radio station I will be listening to and look forward to seeing where they are down the road. Check them out at www.vetsonmedia.com – then write in and give me your opinion. I would love to hear from you.
Blessings from my family to yours,
