Asian|Boston Radio Launches On WUNR 1600AM! First Show This Sunday at 11:30am!

Hi Everyone!

Asian|Boston Radio Launches On WUNR 1600AM!
Brought to you by The Q Restaurant www.thequsa.com & Chinatown Main Street Festival www.chinatownmainstreet.org.

First Show...this Sunday, June 12th, 2011, at 11:30am!
This is just before Asian|Boston Television at 12noon on WBIN-TV!

BOSTON – Asian|Boston Media Group, New England’s premier and only Asian-targeted outreach platform launches Asian|Boston Radio on WUNR 1600AM, one of Massachusetts oldest ethnic radio stations covering 4 million residents in the region. The Asian|Boston program will start airing on Sunday, June 12, 2011, and runs from 11:30am to noon every Sunday. Then, tune into Asian|Boston TV at 12noon!

In the last decade, the Asian American population in metro Boston grew by a startling 70%, and is projected to grow at a similar rate for the next ten years. With over a quarter million Asian Americans living in Massachusetts, the launch of Asian|Boston Radio becomes a key medium for community building and cultural awareness, as well as for businesses to reach out to this expanding market.

“Many business owners we speak to reveal that their Asian clientele make up 20% to 50% of their revenue. Asian|Boston Radio’s comprehensive coverage on events, fashion, music, cuisine, businesses and people enables companies and their services to become relevant to this community,” says Matt Casey, Programming Director of Asian|Boston Radio. “As the only media group interacting intensively with this niche market, we play a critical role in keeping up with the Asian heritage and its development.”

Asian|Boston’s radio program is the latest addition to its multichannel outreach mediums, which includes TV, print magazine, event, casting and online media. Since 2005, the company strives to provide a comprehensive view of the Asian community through its multifaceted broadcast programs.
