Radio reaches more Americans each week than any other platform. Every year the audio landscape in America continues to expand as more consumers tune in to more (and more) audio across many different platforms. Nielsen’s new Audio Today Report reveals that hundreds of millions of Americans listen to the radio each week; at the same time, usage of digital platforms and podcasts continue to rise.
Prazor has partnered with Creation Festival to create a music channel unique for the artists performing at the festival, as well as serve as host of the late night stage featuring the best up and coming artists in the Christian dance genre. Creation Northeast will take place June 28-July 1 at Agape Farm in Mt. Union, PA. The “Creation Station” launched today on the Prazor platform, offering a music channel exclusively featuring artists of all styles performing at this year’s event. Located as a ‘Premiere’ music channel, “Creation Station” serves as a free way for anyone attending the festival to hear the latest projects by established acts as well as to discover music from the best, up and coming artists. “We are thrilled to partner with Creation Festival. Prazor is unique in the market, being the only destination for music fans to hear all genres of positive Christian music, all in one place,” says Vice President of Music Programming, Jim Epperlein. “Creation Festival shares our passion to not only showcase legacy artists, but to be a place for fans to discover the next generation of talent. Together we hope to share the best in Christian music.”
