Mission: Digital Media
The Current Problem
Traditionally programming for African American market
01. Lack of Variety
Radio stations play the same
songs over and over again,
formats change with the wind.
Many music artists and genres
get very little airplay. Huge
portions of music label ’s
catalogue not monetized
efficiently.
04. Little Discovery
The consumer is overwhelmed by
90 million songs. Playlists lack
regular updates. There over 2
million podcasts. African American
authors and their audiobooks are
buried. Lack of trusted news
sources and information.
02. Radio Gaga
Too much DJ talk. Less music
engagement. Too many
commercials.
03. No Central Platform
There's no central platform where
customers can go to find music,
video, podcasts, news content
focused on the African-American
market.
Traditionally, radio programming for the African American market has been narrow and limited.
Our Solutions
News
Starting with music, entertainment, and popular
news, Rattle Radio will provide listeners with
informative, trusted, non-gossipy news stories.
Digital Media
We will create high quality digital media content
in the form of interviews, concerts,
documentaries, animation, and music videos.
Audiobooks
We’ve created AudioGrio, a 24/7 radio station
and website to promote African American
audiobooks, authors, publishers, and book
stores.
Radio
The Rattle Radio Network gives listeners 45
cutting-edge internet radio stations from
established, indie and new artists/groups. Diverse
genres. Focus on artists. Guest DJs. No
subscriptions. Over 300 artists daily per station.
Podcasts
Our podcasts will provide our listeners with
entertaining, informational, inspirational
and instructive shows with an emphasis on
music, pop culture, news, and sports
programming.
Our Network
Rattle Radio consists of five strong platforms.
The best way to think of this synergy: Sirius/
XM (radio) + Gimlet (podcasts) + Audible
(audiobooks) + Rolling Stone Magazine
(news) + Classic MTV (digital media).

Our Network
Radio
The Rattle Radio Network is not inhibited by the
stereotypical definition of Black music. Our
stations are as diverse as our targeted audience.
Rattle Radio recognizes that great music comes
from great artists and not a mandate from
corporate executives. We play music from
established artists, and we also feature new and
independent artists.
Rattle Radio is a subscription free service.
We feature unique 24/7 radio stations
dedicated to African American artists playing
Rock, Country, Pop, Classical, Folk, Children’s,
Soundtracks, Show Tunes, and Live music.
Our Kidz Zone station will be hosted and
programmed by renowned Children’s Artist,
Uncle Devin.
Rattle Radio has developed 32 podcasts targeted to the African American listener that we
intend to release over the first three years of operation.
Podcasts
Audiobooks
Introducing the AudioGrio Radio
Station and Marketplace.

American audiobooks and authors. The 24/7

retail store.
Our only cost is $10,000 annually for licensing
fees and technology use. As a retailer, we will
retain 43% of each audiobook sold. We will also
produce audiobook titles and retain 88% of sales.
News
2020 illustrated the need to have a platform where African American
voices can be heard and respected. Our news platform will be the
medium for these voices at a local, regional, national, and
international level. We will provide our listeners with informative
reporting in the areas of social justice, music, finance, sports, and
entertainment. Real news, no gossip.

be $1.8 trillion in the year 2024. Additionally, we
seek to attract millennials, multicultural
listeners, and foreign listeners to our platform.
This increase in buying power surpasses that of
both whites (40% increase) and the total U.S.
population (43% increase).

PODCASTS
STREAMING
Programming! Programming! Our
detailed programming slate across five
platforms will appeal to a wide audience.
Our experienced executive team knows
how to leverage programming into
revenue and marketing opportunities.
Strengths
Lack of acess to capital makes it
difficult to create programming and
generate revenue.
Overcoming the stereotype that
African Americans only play and listen
to Hip Hop, R&B, Gospel, and Jazz
music genres.
Weakness
First into the African American
marketplace.
Can be a great partner to match African
American listeners/readers/viewers
with corporate, local, and international
brands and businesses.
Opportunities
A Big Media Company could replicate
our vision and programming.
The perception that we are a music
streaming service like Spotify, Apple
Music, and Amazon Music.
Threats
Competition
Rattle Radio:
1. We offer great music in a
number of different genres to
our audience.
2. We discover and promote both
mainstream, independent and
forgotten artists.
3. Our podcast shows will cover a
broad range of topics.
The Competition:
1. Bloated and not visionary.
2. Tied to an outdated model of
radio.
3. Personality driven podcasts,
and very little news content.

  • 6. The Current Problem Traditionally programming for African American market 01. Lack of Variety Radio stations play the same songs over and over again, formats change with the wind. Many music artists and genres get very little airplay. Huge portions of music label ’s catalogue not monetized efficiently. 04. Little Discovery The consumer is overwhelmed by 90 million songs. Playlists lack regular updates. There over 2 million podcasts. African American authors and their audiobooks are buried. Lack of trusted news sources and information. 02. Radio Gaga Too much DJ talk. Less music engagement. Too many commercials. 03. No Central Platform There's no central platform where customers can go to find music, video, podcasts, news content focused on the African-American market. Traditionally, radio programming for the African American market has been narrow and limited.
