RAVP has been in business since 1976, I started purchasing equipment with paychecks as an electrician (15 years). I video taped Pageants, Festivals, Theater, Weddings, Fashion shows, Radio Promos, and Television promotions.

I soon found I needed an outlet to show all the videos so I contacted TV stations without any luck.  But I didn't give up. Soon, Cable came to Phoenix and I started negotiations with Store Cable/Camelback Cable, and leased channel 150 in Glendale, and 32 in Phoenix for 4 Years. With that I Contracted  Black Entertainment Television for 4 hours of Programming an I Produce 4 hours to start. When B.E.T. went to 8 hours and RAVP went to 6 hours.

RAVP expanded into Cable Television, broadcasting local produce community programming along with national Black Entertainment Television (BET).  It began June 1, 1981 with programming 24 hrs. 7 days a week.

Our programming consisted of: Community Calendars, News, Sports, Movies, Cartoons, Music Videos, Gospel programs, Soap Operas, Family hours, Cook & Exercise shows, Beauty & Health tips, and Music Specials.


At the present, RAVP has branched into Studio space for Corporate videos, TV shows, and Live uplinks. Our goal is build a  TV / RADIO / THEATER  under one roof, and connect with other Broadcast Company's to form a programming network in the southwest.
