About this project

Visit our website: http://mybossfm.com 
  • BossFM is so important to us because we are giving millennials a voice. We are millennials who provide millennials with the education and opportunity to be successful in radio TODAY! They don't have to wait 5 or 10 years! We educate, equip, and empower our team to use the skills they learn immediately! Teaching is a part of our culture! 

    Who Are We? 

    The creatives behind BossFM are Alex Haynes and Stan Rucker. Alex and Stan began their explorations in radio during their college years as 'DJ AppleJacx' and 'Prince Amir' (catchy, right?) and started The AppleJacx Daily Show along with their co-host J. Alyce. The show grew in its 5 Years on air and eventually the team formed a station, UC1025, with a number of other shows added to the mix. After taking a three year hiatus, growing up AND growing bored with the progression (or lack thereof) of radio, the two decided to get back into the game and be the change they wanted to see in the industry. BossFM was created. 

    BossFM launched June 30, 2014. Our first channel (we call them channels and not stations) was #thehashtag, a hip-hop channel with a few dedicated DJs that were young, fresh, opinionated and entertaining. Less than two years later, BossFM has grown to 6 channels and dozens of DJs, personalities, activists, and artists that provide our listeners with many options to listen and engage:

    • #thehashtag: Your Home for Trending Hip-Hop 
    • Hits1: America's Party Channel 
    • The Tick: Your Only Source for Millennial Talk 
    • The Sound: Gospel Without the Organ, Church Without the Pews
    • The Flow: Today's R&B 
    • Body: Your Fitness Soundtrack 

     WHY DO WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT? 

    Growing a radio network is not cheap and since we are young professionals, we could definitely use your help. We are trying to raise $20,000... that's right TWENTY THOUSAND dollars. Your donations will go toward the:  

  • Development and Implementation of a marketing campaign (social media, digital ads, regional print marketing, and billboards) for us to reach an even broader audience 

  • Development and printing of sales kits for our new sales team to present to potential advertisers 
  • Expansion of our new larger space to accommodate two additional studios and team collaboration areas to help facilitate our current growth and maintain the aesthetics that appeal to our millennial listeners and radio guests 
  • Printing and development of promo items like: apparel, flyers, banners, vehicle graphics, videos, and stationary 
  • Deployment of higher quality digital audio streams 
  • Better content delivery on website, mybossfm.com 
  • Live Broadcasts, forums, and programming that reach other millennials to discuss things beyond reality TV like: local and national politics, activism, and social issues 
  • New equipment to ensure high quality digital sound: Studio Desk and Chairs, Controlled Access, Computers and Monitors, Professional Radio Consoles, Microphones and Boom Arm Stands, Web Cams, VoIP phones, Sound Proofing, Live sound editing software

We want to produce quality. It is definitely the only way we are going to accomplish the change we desire!! Please support us in our endeavor to enhance to broadcast industry with content that speaks to the leaders of today (millennials, duh)!

Risks and challenges

After the project ends the potential risks are very minimal. We may run into production delays that may prevent timely arrival of printed promo items.
There also can be delays in finding additional talent to provide new content. The process for finding the right kind of talent is not an easy one. We will work diligently to find and accommodate the talent.
