88rising, the music and media company founded by Sean Miyashiro, launches their all-Asian, multi-genre radio channel called “88RISING RADIO“. The 24/7, commercial-free radio channel can be streamed across the US on SiriusXM. This will be a massive step forward for Asian music and truly a first of its kind on American radio.
Miyashiro, whose artists include Rich Brian, NIKI, and Joji, tells Billboard, “this is a great indicator of where Asian music has come today”. In the past two years, Asian music has seen a historic climb both in North America and globally. Artists like BTS, Rich Brian, and BLACKPINK have found huge success with the U.S. market, topping Billboard’s Hot 100 charts.
In addition to songs from the label’s own artists, tunes from BTS, BLACKPINK, Jackson Wang and others can be expected. Listeners will experience a variety of music styles including K-Pop, R&B, hip-hop, and others.
Miyashiro hopes the channel will ultimately become a “living and breathing universe of Asian music and culture, where we would develop a lot of different shows with personalities that have distinct point of views.”
“88RISING RADIO” is available for streaming now on SiriusXM – Channel 305.
