The annual EMPIRE STATE BUILDING holiday light shows are back, with iHEARTMEDIA stations providing the musical soundtracks.
First up on FRIDAY (12/12), a light show preceding Top 40 WHTZ (Z100)'s JINGLE BALL concert at nearby MADISON SQUARE GARDEN will be synchronized to TAYLOR SWIFT's "Welcome to NEW YORK" at 7p (ET). The LED tower lights will be choreographed by lighting designer MARC BRICKMAN.
Then, four shows synchronized to holiday music will be offered nightly at 7p, synchronized to AC WLTW (106.7 LITE FM). Fans will be able to vote at the EMPIRE STATE BUILDING website for the show that will be replayed on CHRISTMAS EVE; the show that night will also simulcast on Z100, and Top 40/Rhythmic WKTU.
EMPIRE STATE REALTY TRUST Chairman, CEO and President ANTHONY E. MALKIN said, "Through our partnership with iHEARTMEDIA, our light shows to music have become a regular fixture on the NEW YORK CITY skyline, and our holiday light shows are particular NEW YORK CITY favorites. The EMPIRE STATE BUILDING and iHEARTMEDIA are happy to bring the shows back this year as the ultimate holiday gift to NEW YORK CITY and the world. Enjoy our new annual tradition, the crown jewel of iconic NEW YORK holiday festivities that make the city truly magical this time of year."
iHEARTMEDIA President of National Programming Platforms TOM POLEMAN added, "Orchestrating the EMPIRE STATE BUILDING's magnificent lights with LITE FM's CHRISTMAS music gives us the unique opportunity to bring the world's most prominent skyline to life for the holiday season. When you add sound to the orchestrated lights, the show truly comes to life."
