JVC Media's Open For Business

JVC Media announces that it's opening the airwaves of all of its stations in all markets to help promote local essential businesses and services that are still open and still serving the community. JVC Florida stations including Orlando's "103.1 The Wolf" and "Florida Man Radio 660/105.5" and Ocala's "Q92.9," "True Oldies Y100.1" and "US102.3" are calling this "Quarantine Speed Advertising." JVC New York stations including "My Country 96.1," "Oldies 98.1," "La Fiesta 98.5," "LI News Radio 103.1" and "Party 105.3" are promoting the "Pandemic Business Shout Out."

The message is simple. In Florida call the Quarantine Speed Advertising line at 407-647-5332, in New York call 631-542-5441, and leave a 30-second voicemail showcasing your business. The JVC team will produce your message and play it on the appropriate radio station free of charge.

"Now more than ever, our community needs to come together and stay at home to keep their families and loved ones safe," said JVC Executive VP of Florida Shane Reeve. "We are committed to our communities and we will use every asset available to us to serve them."

JVC/New York Executive VP Bruce Shepard added, "Consumers are spending less time in cars, at concerts, and other out of home locations. With consumers hunkered down in their homes with radios and smart speakers playing radio stations, radio wins. Listeners want interaction not just a play list. We have been overwhelmed with calls to our Pandemic Business Shout out and we are happy to help local businesses get the word out".

JVC Media President and CEO John Caracciolo said, "This is the time for radio to shine. We are not closed, we are not automated, we are live, local, and serving our local communities. I don't see the streaming or satellite services offering something like that."
