The Administrators:

 

Owner/ Founder

Ryan Smith, Owner/ Founder

This is Ryan Smith, who founded i99Radio back in May 2014. Ryan wanted to listen to alternative rock music, that had a mix of his mainstream favorites, including Imagine Dragons, Green Day, Paramore, Muse, Pearl Jam & more, but also a mix of some of his favorite independent & local alternative rock bands such as Brick + Mortar, Edisun, The Griswolds, The Loud Company, Red Letter Life & more! Ryan didn’t want another every day corporate radio station. Ryan wanted a mix of everything alternative, with little to no commercials, and that’s how he started #i99Radio! You can reach him at ryan@i99radio.com!
