As the owner of Housemasters radio I want to inform you about some significant changes to the funding model of our station, and I wanted to share the details with you. I understand that this may be a delicate situation for some, however, I have faith recognition of the long-term benefits of this new model will be shared and that you all will support us in making this transition and remain as valued DJs on our home of music.
Our station has been operating on a non-obligatory subscription and donation model, which has been instrumental in covering our running costs. However, as we grow and expand into 2024 and our tenth year, we recognise the need for a more sustainable and secure funding model, one which is fair for all and with all participating.
This new subscription-based model that will ensure the legal and financial stability of Housemasters radio, and ultimately, enable us to offer more opportunities to all our DJs. To that end, from 1st August 2023, all DJs who wish to perform on our platform will be required to enter into a monthly subscription plan of £7.99. We appreciate that this change may be challenging for some of you, however, it is essential for the long-term security and success of our station.
The new subscription plan will provide numerous benefits to our DJs, including:
With the new subscription model, we will be able to afford the cost of our broadcast license, which ensures that we operate within the bounds of the law. This means that our DJs can have peace of mind knowing that they are performing on a legitimate and legal platform, which reflects positively on them as artists and helps to enhance our overall reputation as a station.
We will be able to save and afford an annual Housemasters event. This event will be a significant opportunity for our DJs to showcase their talent and gain exposure while bringing together our listeners and partners. The event will create a platform for networking, collaboration, and celebration of our shared love of house music. It will also provide a chance for us to show our appreciation for your contributions to the station’s success. We are excited about the possibilities this event will bring, including the scope for further advertising, business partnerships and revenue.
In addition to these benefits, this new model will ensure Housemasters can continue to cover the costs of operations and provide the solid platform you need to perform. In conclusion it’s vital to remember the importance of our working together, ensuring the legal and financial stability of our station, its long-term security and longevity. Only together can we can take Housemasters Radio to new heights and become more than just a great place on the internet.
Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to continuing to work with you. I have anticipated some questions you may have, so have tried to answer with hopefully helpful and reassuring answers HERE or to create subscription
