WHO WE ARE
As our story begins in Chicago in 1999 with the launch of the first Russian-American community website in the Mid-west bomond.com, which has since transformed into one of the largest and well-known Russian-language sites in North America. Over the years we have expanded into publishing, advertising, broadcasting, show business, event management, tv and video. Currently, we own and operate multiple online properties including events and magazines, daily live prime-time radio show “Vashe Radio” which has been #1 in ratings for the past 11 years in a row, on a powerful WSBC AM1240 from our own studio with simultaneous audio and video streaming over the web and mobile. We have produced over 400 events at some of the best venues across the US. We care about people, communities, culture, energy, climate change and healthy lifestyles. We love to meet new people, travel, learn new things, and, of course, our work. Since 2010 this group of companies had been called Chicago Ethnic Media, and in 2015 we have re-branded and adopted (media)n as one brand that unifies all of our media efforts.
We produce, run, host, publish, print, operate, design, develop, code, record, shoot, edit, stream, upload, download, and sometimes sleep. We also play, but mostly on weekends. We actually do everything ourselves, in-house, ensuring that we're delivering tangible results to our customers. Audio, video production, motion graphics, web design, graphic design, web development, ios/android, ecommerce, creative and marketing services, advertising, media placement, local and nationwide multicultural ad campaigns and more.
