  • NRG Radio has moved its headquarters in Nairobi from Almont Park in Westlands along Church Road.

    Speaking to Kenyans.co.ke on Tuesday, February 9, NRG Head of Broadcast Kevin B said that the station had moved to the iconic Le Mac Tower.

    In what is said to be a major upgrade, the station has also redesigned its office decor but was still keen to maintain the Red, White and Black brand colours.

    “When NRG Radio puts together a radio station, this is how it looks. We are so proud of our new home. Seven floors up in one of Nairobi’s most prestigious buildings,” offered Bellwood.

    The NRG Radio set up includes three state-of-the-art studios, a production room and a central technical area (CTA).

    The urban station also maintained its state of the art radio equipment that allows fans to stream audiovisual content. 

    NRG Radio took the digital space by storm, and in terms of tech, they have been leading their competition most of whom have been in the media space for years.

    The station used state of the art Lawo IP Radio Consoles, which feature IP-based connectivity and allows remote access. 

    It became one of the first media companies in Africa to adopt Lawo crystal and sapphire radio mixing consoles and R3LAY virtual radio mixers.

    According to those in the know, the first studio features a 12-fader Lawo crystal mixing console with integrated router plus advanced radio automation software with 720p HD video playout capability and six-channel video mixing software with integral CG and graphics generation to add the station’s logo, news crawls, weather info and custom legends.

    The third studio is a ‘virtual studio’, which is configured around Lawo’s R3LAY virtual console. Due to its portability, the R3LAY virtual mixing console offers NRG Radio the best fit for its requirements, both in terms of OB, studio operations and the aim to make the studio design special and unique – it’s a futuristic and cool setup, with very few components in the studio.
