JVC MEDIA Classic Rock WRCN/LONG ISLAND has "tweaked" its Classic Rock format to include some Mainstream Rock.
Calling the change "a slight format tweak," VP/Programming CHARLIE LOMBARDO said, "I am proud of what WRCN is and how we serve our LONG ISLAND listeners, and this change is really a reflection of the changing LONG ISLAND demographic and what they wanted."
"The station has new life and new energy and our playlist is truly the rock of LONG ISLAND," added VP/COO VIC LATINO.
In addition to the newer music and mainstream mix, the station announced the addition of a brand new morning show. The "Real Radio Show" will debut on SEPTEMBER 4th at 6a. Hosted by radio vet FRANKIE DEE, along with sidekicks HENRY K and TWISTED SISTER member A.J PERO, the show is described as "a high energy mix of comedy, music, celebrity interviews and worldwide entertainment." The show will also devote a segment to local LONG ISLAND talent.
Joining the cast on the debut show will be KISS front man GENE SIMMONS.
