From RadioInsight


Envision Broadcast Network, owners of Hot AC Q92 The Beat 92.3 KKGQ
Newton/Wichita KS has announced it will merge into Rocking M Media.

Rocking M currently owns 24 stations in Central and Western Kansas and is
in the process of acquiring Variety Hits “97.1 Bob-FM” KIBB Haven and
Classic Country “100.5 Hank-FM” KVWF Augusta in the Wichita markets from
Connoisseur Media.

As part of the deal, Rocking M will integrate Envision Broadcast Academys
educational programs for the vision impaired into its operations in all of
its markets.

Envision today 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 Q92 (92.3 KKGQ-FM). 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.
