Wave45 was founded on 45th Street in NYC by Adrian Grant and Gladymir Leveille as they recognized a new wave of original Urban video content hitting the web (hence the name Wave45). They then sought out to create a platform that enabled viewers to watch these entertaining shows 24/7. After pooling their resources together Wave45.TV was launched March 2012.
