Audacy and Osiris Media are partnering to create music podcasts. The launch program is Breaking Waves: Seattle, an oral history of the emergence and growth of grunge and alternative music in the city in the 80s and 90s.
“We are excited to work with Osiris Media to draw from the rich histories and archives of our venerable stations across the country and help bring their stories to life,” said J.D. Crowley, Chief Digital Officer, Audacy. “We’re looking forward to launching this partnership with the premier of Breaking Waves this summer, the first step in a series of captivating content we can’t wait to deliver to our audience.”
“Audacy has been a leader in delivering music content to listeners across the country for the past 50 years,” said RJ Bee, CEO, Osiris Media. “We are excited to partner with a company that has the foresight to see the power of curated audio entertainment for music fans. The Audacy team has been incredibly encouraging and optimistic about how this show can help reach passionate music fans.”
The series will leverage Audacy brands 99.9 KISW (KISW-FM) and 107.7 The End (KNDD-FM) in Seattle, drawing extensive recollections from the stations’ top influencers and programmers to paint the story. Breaking Waves: Seattle will be heard on select Audacy alternative and classic rock stations. It will premier this summer.
