TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES FOIL iHUB 2021 CONTENT LAUNCH
by John McMullen
It is with a great deal of frustration and anticipation that I regret to inform you that we are not able to launch our new live streaming service and schedule as planned on January 20, 2021.
On Tuesday, January 19, less than 24 hours from the scheduled launch, we were beset by problems with the server and automation system that controls many of the elements on air and keeps everything operating around the clock, even when we are not in the studios. This has been a source of great consternation as everything was working fine... and then, suddenly, every other audio event was no going out through our main control room. It's a bit more frustrating because as part of our digital upgrade this past summer, we installed state-of-the-art tools and resources.
We hope to launch by Monday, January 25. But, as we tend to say in this business, PLEASE STAND BY. We were sure all the bugs and gremlins were worked out on this past Monday night.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.

iHUB RADIO NEWS
Jimmy Francisco, who has entertained weekday morning audiences for the better part of the past two years on iHub Radio will welcome a new partner when live programming resumes on January 28, 2021. Alum Jeremy Wayne, cohost of iHub Radio's inaugural evening show, Jeremy & Noelle, returns to the microphone after taking a hiatus in 2020 to deal with family and health matters.
Wayne is an experienced broadcaster who has also been part of the groundbreaking enterprises at GAYBC Radio Network in Seattle and SIRIUS OutQ in New York City, later joining his former colleagues at KNews AM & FM in Palm Springs before being part of the launch team at iHub Radio.
"Jimmy Francisco and Jeremy Wayne have a great chemistry together on-air," says founder John McMullen. "Their complimentary tastes in music and their vastly divergent interests and life experiences will make them a great deal of fun and fascination for listeners in the mornings and evenings on iHub Radio."
McMullen will resume his solo afternoon show, which he put on hiatus in September after he suffered a small stroke, which he has fully recovered from. There are several changes to the show schedule, which are now noted on the pages of this website, including new program offerings.
