Since 2009, Robb Haagsman [former music director at WDBM - Michigan State University] & Rupam Sofsky [former music director at WWVU - West Virginia University] have worked together, promoting artists at CMJ / College & FMQB / Commercial Specialty Radio formats. The duo boast an unrivaled track record of breaking artists at the College & Commercial Specialty formats, jointly sharing more #1 charting CMJ 200 releases than any other radio promotion team!
A key part of Shine On's success is Sam, who is no stranger to the radio world, previously DJing at KURE in Iowa before numerous Music Industry jobs in New York City, including working with Robb & Rupam since 2014.
In 2015 - with a different radio firm, at the time - the trio spent a whopping 28 out of a possible 47 weeks at #1 on the CMJ Radio 200 Chart!!! [For context, the team in second place only boasted nine weeks out of a possible 47.]
In 2015, while at a previous firm, the trio pushed the following artists to #1 on the CMJ Radio 200 Chart: Sleater-Kinney [#1 performing CMJ release of 2015!], Beach House [5 weeks at #1, longer than any other release], The Alabama Shakes, Grimes, Father John Misty, Thee Oh Sees, Protomartyr & King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard.
In 2016, the trio has scored success at CMJ for artists like King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard [#1], Andrew Bird [#1], Hinds [#2], Yeasayer, La Sera, Explosions In The Sky, Cullen Omori, Yuck, Mothers, Eleanor Friedberger, Shearwater, The Coathangers, Audacity & more!
Let Robb, Rupam & Sam put their years of joint experience into bringing your release to radio success!
