The Core 94! is a Houston based, minority owned and operated internet radio station founded on March 1, 2014 by five African American women.
We stream online 24/7 featuring speciality mixes, live shows and interviews.
The Core 94! is run by four of the five original founders: Verda Carr, Brittany Hardiman, Nneka Kimble and Naeisha Nance and a collection of radio personalities, djs and volunteers within the Houston community.
The ultimate goal of The Core 94! is to give a 24 hour platform that is not dictated by large business. This is reflected in the music we play (which is largely geared to local and independent artists), our radio personalities (who are often entrepreneurs just starting out in radio or everyday outspoken individuals), the way we talk (completely unfiltered and free) and how we do business (locally first).
We don’t believe bigger is always better and The Core 94! is here to prove that.
The station is located in a converted warehouse space in Hiram Clarke.
