New Vision at Envision – The Envision Broadcast Network joined forces this week with Manhattan, KS based Rocking M Media LLC. The impetus was a mutual desire to expand employment opportunities in the radio industry for those who are blind or visually impaired.
Envision Senior Vice President of Foundation and Mission Services, Heather Hogan, explained, “Having already employed individuals with vision loss at some of its existing stations, Rocking M Media shares Envisions’ belief that people with all abilities should have access to meaningful career paths. 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.”
Rocking M Media President Christopher Miller added “All it took was one visit to Envision for us to know the Envision Broadcast Network was something special. 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 multi-state 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.
