WRCN Playing More New Rock And Seeks Air Talent

Back in August, JVC MEDIA Rocker WRCN/LONG ISLAND "tweaked" its Classic Rock format to include some Mainstream Rock (NET NEWS 8/28). Now the station is adding even more "new" music to its mix.
VP/Programming CHARLIE LOMBARDO said, "We’re almost two months into the new sound for RCN which has been playing some form of Rock for almost 40 years and is responsible for Long Islanders growing up and hearing great bands like U2, BON JOVI and ZZ TOP. Now we're back doing what we used to do playing new music from bands like THE BLACK KEYS, THREE DAYS GRACE and this band called THE ROLLING STONES."
LOMBARDO also said "I believe the new stuff makes the classics sound even better so this new rock will be in the mix and it will be one of my jobs to make sure the mix is right."
As of last week, WRCN has been spinning new Rock titles like THE BLACK KEYS "LITTLE BLACK SUBMARINE," THREE DAYS GRACE "CHALK OUTLINE," THE LUMINEERS "HO HEY," LINKIN PARK "LOST IN THE ECHO,' SOUNDGARDEN'S "BEEN AWAY TOO LONG" and THE ROLLING STONES "DOOM AND GLOOM" at least three times per day.
Consequently, LOMBARDO is looking for record company support and is also looking for passionate part timers for weekends and fill in’s during the upcoming holidays. Reach out to LOMBARDO at firstname.lastname@example.org.
