Converge Radio and Valley Media Works (also known as “Eau Claire Public Access Center”) announce the merging of their operations and board, creating a community-focused source for broadcast radio and television in the Chippewa Valley. The newly formed organization will operate under the name Converge Media, with office locations at CoLab and Banbury Place in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
“We’re excited about this new entity we’re creating,” says Executive Board Member, Ed Hudgins, “In recent years, Converge Radio and Valley Media Works have explored collaboration, seeking ways to make both organizations more impactful. We have a renewed sense of purpose as we continue to mobilize toward being what we can be for the Eau Claire community and beyond. We’re just getting started!”
Valley Media Works streams content online and broadcasts on Spectrum Communications Cable Television on channels 993 and 994. In 2020, Converge Radio began transmitting on WRFP 101.9FM, after their departure from 99.9FM and becoming an independent radio station. That marked the first collaboration between the two operations, which ultimately led to the idea that a deeper partnership could be forged. CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE.
