VMI Media Group, creators of The Village Magazine and the 9th Ave Mural Project, would like to announce to new partnerships that further our cause of bring hyper local arts and culture news to the residents of Manatee, Sarasota through our publication, The Village: Magazine of the Arts.
Our first partnership is a new digital distribution channel with thebradentontimes.com, Bradenton’s number one independent and locally focused news source.
Starting with the July 2012 issue of The Village Magazine, we will be posting and storing it on thebradentontimes.com. With enhanced content and a readership of more than 150,000 people per month, the partnership is a testament to the combined desire by local media outlets to promote themselves and the locals directly involved in our community.
During the Tuesday editions of the Robyn Report, an hour-long show daily from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. that focuses on local news by local people, I will be cohosting the show and doing my own segment, The Village Radio. In the last half of the show I take over with The Village Radio and bring you the latest hyper local arts, culture and music news.
In our first two weeks we’ve had local writer Jen Glenfield talking about the growing young and old arts scene in Bradenton and Sarasota. And this past week we had Michael Murphy of The Closet, and local band Bard & Mustache, both from Sarasota. The Village Radio, much like the The Village Magazine, focuses on informing and educating the local populace on who the artists and creatives are next door to you.
Here are the links to the first two podcasts with The Village Radio segment to give you an idea of how it works.
