On June 3rd, the Richmond Business Alliance had the opportunity to meet with several representatives from iHeart Media. The event began with a tour of iHeart Media’s facilities. Following the tour, was a luncheon featuring a presentation led by, account executive, Rae Berryman on “The Power of Radio.” Berryman discussed iHeart Media’s role in helping to promote local businesses through radio and social media advertisements. She highlighted the company’s involvement with LGBT establishments such as: Godfrey’s, Babes, and other companies in our community. We also had the pleasure of meeting Q94’s Jackson Scott. He shared his positive experiences as an openly gay radio personality. It was very uplifting to hear that this multimedia nationally known company has such a strong connection with the LGBT community. This continues to prove how far we’ve come in terms of business equality.
Congratulations to long-time-alliance member Cecilia Rich for winning $1,000 worth of free radio advertising! Here's what she had to say about her experience:
"Boy, has radio changed! The Lunch and Learn at iHeart Media was a wonderful opportunity to meet other business owners and to see how radio could possibly enhance my business. Hats off to the RBA and iHeart Media for a job well done. The event was informative and extremely entertaining. To top it off, Rae pulled my name out to Win a $1000 Gift Certificate towards FREE Advertising on any of the 7 stations. RBA, thank you for presenting this opportunity to me. I look forward to my meeting with Rae to see how she can help brand my business!"
