Memphis broadcast company Kudzukian moves to Agricenter, podcasting


Traffic manager Jeremy McKnight works in the control room at Kudzukian's new headquarters  at the Agricenter on Tuesday, July 20, 2021.

Since launching seven years ago, Memphis broadcast company Kudzukian has grown its business dramatically.

The company is currently producing more than 20 shows — largely, though not exclusively — focused on Black arts, social, political and community issues. The shows have found homes on satellite and terrestrial radio, as well as various podcast platforms. Now the company’s headquarters are catching up. On Thursday, Kudzukian cut the ribbon on a gleaming new office space at the Agricenter

Kudzukian, which had been operating from offices on Monroe Avenue in Midtown, needed an all-encompassing space, said the company’s founder, Larry T. Robinson. “It was a combination of things,” said Robinson. “Basically we outgrew where we were, as our staff has grown quite extensively and we started to feel very cramped.”

Kudzukian currently has 15 employees.

The new Kudzukian home is expansive, with three recording studios, livestreaming facilities, and expanded office and storage space. “Ultimately it allows us to serve our customers even better,” said Robinson. “In addition to that John Butler, the (president) of Agricenter, has been very supportive of what Kudzukian does and really helped us to see a bigger vision by being a part of the complex they have.”
