iHEARTMEDIA Classic Rock WPYX (PYX 106)/ALBANY, NY announced that it will observe Veterans Day with a special broadcast featuring 11 military servicemen and women from the Capital Region. The veterans will host the station's programming, music and conversational topics for the day.
For two weeks in OCTOBER, WPYX personalities encouraged local veterans to visit PYX106.com and submit to guest DJ on the station. Eleven veterans were selected to DJ their own hour-long broadcast on NOVEMBER 11th. Veterans will rock PYX 106 from 8a (ET) to 7p (ET) with stories of VIETNAM, IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN, and their own personal experiences. PYX 106 will also air audio clips throughout the day featuring World War II veterans.
"This is our third year hosting local veterans on-air playing their favorite music and telling our listeners about their experiences," said JOHN COOPER, iHEARTMEDIA SVP/Programming. "We receive such positive feedback for this program each year and are excited to continue this tradition of letting our community hear about our great nation’s military servicemen and women and the great work they do for our country."
