Celebrate 35 Years of AIR
On May 11, 2023, AIR celebrated our 35th-anniversary party at The Greene Space in NYC.
It was an evening full of AIR staff, board, founding members, new members, New Voices alums, Edit Mode alums, mentors and more!
In the fall of 1988, freelance producers gathered around a kitchen table in downtown New York City to talk shop. What emerged from their conversations—a blueprint of what was and was definitively not working in their audio careers—formed the foundation of AIR: the Association of Independents in Radio, which was officially recognized as a nonprofit that year.
Since then, AIR has supported independent producers and media makers, advocating for their needs as they navigate the industry together through training, resources, and mentorship all while creating a vibrant network of audio professionals around the world.
