Radio Milwaukee Focuses on Community Engagement with New Offices and Broadcast Studios


RadioMilwaukee, home to 88Nine, provides an important service to the city of Milwaukee through public forums, independent music programming and support of local musicians and artists. The radio station's new studio, designed by HGA Architects and Engineers (HGA) of Milwaukee, reflects its community commitment.

Outgrowing its existing studio, RadioMilwaukee identified a larger location in an existing commercial building in Milwaukee's eclectic Walker's Point neighborhood to expand music programming, cultural outreach and community involvement. The studio accommodates a range of programming, from regularly scheduled broadcasts to public tours, artist visits, on-air studio performances, volunteering, internship programs, community discussion and video production.

The renovated two-story, 14,170-square-foot brick building includes state-of-the-art broadcast studios, performance studio, community events space, administrative offices, open workstations, conference rooms, equipment storage area, green roof with performance area and tenant space for Stone Creek Coffee, which shares the station's community events space for customer seating.
