Main Street Radio

Here’s an election night photo looking at the WMST(AM/FM) storefront on Main Street in Mount Sterling, Ky. It’s practically Norman Rockwell with the bunting inside. WMST provided election coverage and news for the area. Its owner, Gateway Radio Works, also simulcast the news to its other properties, WKYN(FM) (which operates out of the WMST facilities), WIVY(FM) and WKCA(FM) (which share facilities in Morehead, Ky.).

Have a photo that screams, “Radio!” For Photo of the Week consideration, send it to radioworld@nbmedia.com.

Targeting Youth the Fun Way

In September, Bavaria, Germany-based Radio Horeb (part of the Radio Maria family), held an open house, inviting its listeners to get a behind-the-scenes view of their studios and gear. During the event, the station allowed each visitor (more than 3,000) to take a selfie next to its studio equipment. Station staff, most of which works on a volunteer basis, then decided to join in on the fun and snapped a few shots of themselves. Pictured here is the station’s team, which hosts “Abend der Jugend” (Evening of the Youth) each Monday night — from left to right are Regina Frey, Patrick Koczwara, Barbara Hanner and Benedikt Hanner.

Daisy, Daisy ...

This photo shows the futuristic and fun entrance to the iHeartMedia performance space at the company’s corporate headquarters in New York. Music begins playing to greet visitors when someone enters the hallway. Does your station have its own particularly interesting public area or architectural details? Please share it with us!
