Beasley Media Group, a subsidiary of Beasley Broadcast Group, owns and operates 69 AM and FM stations in markets across the country—including five stations located in Las Vegas. With such a high output, including millions of on-air listeners and online brand engagement, having exceptional technology is important—which is where Michael Rainey comes in. Rainey helps to support a 24/7 broadcast as well as the production and sales side of the business.

Working in broadcasting, Rainey is often tasked with time-sensitive problem solving and the implementation of rapidly changing technology. As a broadcast engineer, Rainey has to quickly diagnose and troubleshoot audio issues, perform extensive testing prior to recording or transmission, and solve any on-air issues that may occur once broadcasting begins. He is also responsible for identifying and incorporating broadcast solutions and equipment updates, enhancements and modifications.

An integral player in recent tower upgrades to keep radio signal strong in Southern Nevada, Rainey’s skill set is multifaceted and far-reaching. Working on the operational side of the business, he is responsible for implementing all companywide IT initiatives, technologically supporting the sales and production staff, and generally keeping everything running smoothly.
