Music has always been a huge part of the WeWork experience. In addition to being a creative outlet and form of expression for many of our members, the music we play in our locations helps to set the rhythm and energy of the space and fuels the productivity of our global community all over the world.
Today, we’re excited to announce that we’re partnering with iHeartMedia, the leading media company in America with a greater reach in the U.S. than any other radio or television outlet, to create Work Radio—a live station on iHeartRadio featuring an original mix of music and exclusive content centered on entrepreneurship and creating your life’s work.
Want to tune in? Work Radio will feature a universal music channel streamed across our locations nationwide and will also be available under a special “Perfect For Work” label through the iHeartRadio app and website. Later this summer, we’ll begin streaming episodes of an original podcast on Work Radio featuring honest conversations between entrepreneurs and creators to inspire our community of almost 60,000 members and iHeartRadio’s more than 85 million registered users.
We are committed to providing our members space, technology and services to foster creativity and collaboration. To this end, we’re also building out a recording space at our New York City headquarters, which will provide a brand new platform to live-stream interviews, events, and performances directly to the Work Radio station. This means our members—who are some of the most creative people on the planet—can produce their own original audio content and share their talent and the WeWork experience well beyond our office locations.
