“I’m really looking forward to hearing the excellent content that the students at Ex’pression deliver,” says Energy Groove founder Freddy Elturk.  “The Energy Groove radio platform gives them the means to share their creativity, and because it’s streamed digitally, anyone anywhere can enjoy - and become fans of - their shows.”

Energy Groove’s studios are housed in SAE campuses around the world.  The stations have grown from having 12,000 international listeners when they launched in 2009 to their current audience of more than 5 million combined listeners.

The on-air schedule in each Energy Groove territory includes live and pre-recorded music and mix shows, talk shows, and educational segments (including product reviews from key figures in the audio and film industries and news about audio/film industry innovations) that are entirely student created.  There’s also shared programming from Energy Groove affiliates in other countries.  Along with streaming on the web, Energy Groove is heard on the in-flight entertainment system across all 220 planes that fly the international routes of Emirates Airlines.

“Energy Groove offers a forum for Ex’pression students to apply their classroom experiences at a dynamic, real world media outlet that reaches millions of listeners around the globe,” says Ex’pression College Campus Director Elmo Frazer.  “The opportunities for students to develop valuable content programming, marketing, and audio content production skills will be vast, and will give the students a powerful edge in their career journeys.”
