W+K Launches Radio Station – Proves still cooler than your ad agency.

In my opinion, having something like a blog, podcast, or twitter for any company is a great way to give some insight on who you are and what you do on both business, and social levels. If you’ve ever read my posts in the past about W+K, you already know that I’m a huge fan of their work. Between Jason and I, we pretty much read all the blogs by the various offices of W+K around the world. Each blog has it’s own flavor and charm that lends to being able to have glimpses into the lives of the incredible creative individuals there.

This week, the Portland office launched W+K Radio to great fanfare. Spearheaded by Janice Grube and Radio Sloan; the weekly radio show is host to staff picked music, events, and even talks from the maven himself Dan Wieden. I come for the talks but I stay for the music. Everything from Spank Rock to punk rock has been played on the station. Keep up the good work guys.

Wieden+Kennedy (W+K; earlier spelled Wieden & Kennedy) is an independently owned American advertising agency best known for its work for Nike. Founded by Dan Wieden and David Kennedy on April 1, 1982, in Portland, Oregon, it is one of the largest independently-owned advertising agencies in the world. Source: Wikipedia
