San Diego’s MEC Network Inc is establishing a satellite studio operation in the heart of Burbank, Los Angeles, that will enable it’s Hip Hop Rhythmic brand BLAZIN’ 98.9 FM and the group’s Mexican CBC Network affiliate to develop an array of future digital and content strategies between L.A., San Diego and Mexico City.

“It’s a significant investment” MEC CEO/President Mario Mayans says “but the tri-city grid is something we envisioned and have been planning for some time. With multi-platform broadcast technologies a reality, and the key focus on content, being where it all happens creates instant access and opportunity to maximize these futures for the network.”

The unique move means BLAZIN’ 98.9’s recently signed morning combo THE BAKA BOYZ can operate between L.A. and San Diego at will, with instant access to major artists, celebrities, and events.

OM/Brand & Marketing, Lee Cornell, explains “This concept excited Eric V., Nick V. and J. Love from the moment we tabled it. It adds a dynamic to the BAKA BOYZ BLAZIN’ 98.9 show that capitalizes on their L.A. radio heritage and national profile, and gives San Diego listeners content they simply won’t get on other stations. The guys are plugged in to the L.A. music and celebrity circuit and this brings it home to Diego.”

The MEC Burbank “L.A. Central” studios will include the latest Harris 24 channel digital consoles and state of the art technology in two broadcast studios with additional production and mix suite areas. MEC IT/Chief Engineer, Gabriel De La Pena, is overseeing the site installation located in the heart of Burbank adjacent to the Warner Bros studio lot.
