Beyonce Houston Radio

It really shouldn’t have taken this long. Seriously. Beyonce finally has her own 24-hour radio station, and she didn’t pay a dime to do it! I have to play “Diva” relentlessly, and repeat “Every radio ’round the world know me, cuz that’s where I beeeeee!” It finally happened, and perhaps for good reason! This former news radio station, known as News92 in Houston, Texas, had been failing in their ratings for quite some time. There’s honestly no better place than King Bey‘s hometown to honor her with a 24/7 station dedicated to her music, right? Critics everywhere are saying how they don’t think all Beyonce all the time will fare any better in the ratings, but even with the option of online listeners, I’m pretty sure the new direction will take off just fine. After calling it quits with their last on-air broadcast yesterday (10/8), the company issued this statement below:

“We’d like to thank the News92 staff for their outstanding service, our advertisers and each of you our listeners and web visitors for your support. This difficult decision is a result of sustained poor ratings performance and significant financial losses over the past three years despite the substantial financial and human resources we invested. Unfortunately, the market hasn’t shown a sustainable appetite for news radio, but each of you motivated us daily to produce a high-quality news program. Together, we made history.”
