Cumulus unveils “NASH Campus”


nash_logoCumulus announced the debut of the NASH Campus, the nation’s first multimedia facility devoted solely to producing and distributing content based on the Country music lifestyle, including radio programming, TV/videos, magazines and events.

The NASH campus includes three studios designed for a combination of TV and radio programming, indoor and outdoor event space, a print newsroom and extensive office space. Leading Country stars including Taylor Swift, Brad Paisley, Lady Antebellum and Sheryl Crow are among the early visitors who’ve already spent time at the NASH campus.

The NASH campus is currently home to “America’s Morning Show,” “NASH Nights Live with Shawn Parr,” “American Country Countdown with Kix Brooks,” “Kickin’ It with Kix” and Country Weekly (soon to be renamed NASH) magazine.

All NASH Campus programming originates from studios equipped with state-of-the-art ORAD voice-activated HD cameras that enable online streaming, HD taping and live television broadcasting.

“We designed the NASH campus to inspire and support the creation of a full-spectrum of Country content. This new state-of-the-art facility will enable us to power NASH’s multimedia platforms and secure its position as the nation’s preeminent lifestyle and entertainment brand for Country music fans,” said Lew Dickey, CEO of Cumulus.

All 68 Cumulus-owned Country stations are “Powered by NASH” and programming from the NASH campus currently airs on more than 400 radio stations nationwide. More than 1,200 Country stations nationally have access to NASH content through WestwoodOne, the wholly owned subsidiary of Cumulus that handles content distribution. Cumulus is also an investor in digital audio provider Rdio, which will soon announce dedicated NASH programming. NASH will also include live events, consumer products and television programming.



  1. Now you know part of the reason why Cumulus never fixed all those glaring technical problems at the local stations. They were too busy concentrating on their “evil empire”. Don’t forget the other part of the reason: Cumulus hates local radio and local radio people. They consider them a drain on the resources. How many people have they fired? How many careers have they torpedoed? How many families with children have been affected by these asshats? They don’t care so why should you?

  2. It is unfortunate that Cumulus owns any radio stations. They have destroyed the format of one station in Dallas, one station in Flower Mound is simply a simulcast of another station, and are in the process of destroying WBAP in Fort Worth. One FM station was actually turned off because they did not want it to exist as a competition owned station and owning it was getting in the way of getting a Local Marketing Agreement for a more powerful station. Cumulus seems to be King Midas in reverse. A broadcast station owner should be limited to a maximum of fifty “AM” stations, fifty FM stations and fifty TV stations.
