KEXP’s objective is to develop a broader audience specifically among millennials and Gen Z. The executive team was looking for ways to garner interest from younger demographics and I pitched to the executive team to host a live Hip Hop event. This led to creating the first-ever KEXP Street Sounds Live, with performances by Parisalexa, J’von, and Soultanz. Hosted by KEXP DJs Stas THE Boss and Mike Ramos.
