Chinamerica Hit Radio
While radio stations offering Chinese or dialect based music is not new, an interesting concept has emerged 2 years ago. This is the Chinamerica Hit Radio, a New York based internet radio offering 24 hours of Mandarin and Canto pop. Another interesting difference being that the programs are hosted in English opening the world of Chinese music to the global audience.
The man who started it all is Steve Warren a veteran in the radio industry and a talented author, entrepreneur, consultant and public speaker.
He was introduced to the contemporary Chinese music through his friend, Bo Qiao, an employee of the Chinese Consulate in New York. His new discovery ignited an entrepreneurial spark leading him to explore the possibility of a net based radio service.
Starting with an initial idea to broadcast one or two hours a week, the idea eventually evolved into something much bigger. The result was the founding of Chinamerica Hit Radio, a 24/7 free internet based radio hosted in English and available all over the world.
24 hours a day, audience around the world can listen to Jay Chou, Hins Cheung, Jolin Tsai, Coco Lee, Eason Chan, Leehom Wang, Elva Hsaio, David Tao, Wei Shi, and groups like 5566, Flower, S.H.E., Lollipop, F.I.R., Boyz and many others from Cantonese and Mandarin Pop music backgrounds.
While Chinese around the world naturally find the service appealing, Chinamerica Hit Radio open a whole new world for non-Chinese segment; people who are interested in Chinese language, contemporary Chinese culture and Chinese language students. They now have the option to immerse in contemporary Chinese music learning and enjoying at the same time.
