Boulder, CO (OCTOBER 18, 2022) – VuHaus Group is excited to announce the addition of its newest affiliate, the Jacksonville Music Experience (JME) from WJCT Public Media to VuHaus Group. WJCT Public Media will curate a new local page on the NPR Live Sessions website with their unique, local, and engaging music video content.
WJCT Public Media joins 21 of the most influential public media outlets as a member of VuHaus Group, a growing network of public radio and television stations and national radio shows that share a common mission to support emerging and local artists.
“We’re thrilled for the Jacksonville Music Experience to join the NPR Live Sessions community,” says WJCT Arts and Culture editor Matthew Shaw. “Collectively, the nearly two-dozen NPR Live Sessions stations provide an unmatched platform for music discovery. And, individually, each station offers a window into their own music scene. It’s an honor and a privilege to do the same for Jacksonville.”
“The Jacksonville Music Experience is the first station from Florida to join VuHaus Group and to appear on NPR Live Sessions,” said VuHaus Group brand manager Mike Henry. “Their aggressive music strategy includes three HD music channels and a commitment to local music through a busy in-studio performance schedule in the biggest sound stage I’ve ever seen. We welcome them to our growing public radio music discovery network.”
