EMMIS AAA WRXP/NEW YORK grabs former CBS Rock WXRK (K-ROCK)/NEW YORK afternooner NIK CARTER to handle afternoons 3-7p, starting MARCH 30th. The confirmation comes days after he appeared in the RXP shift as a "guest host" on the day following K-ROCK's format flip to Top 40.
"It started last week when we invited NIK to come on the morning show with MATT PINFIELD to say goodbye to his fans, and we twisted his arm into hosting afternoons that day!" said RXP PD/morning show co-host LESLIE FRAM. "Everyone in the building thought he sounded amazing, so we willed it to happen -- he's the perfect pm-drive host who knows the music and this city."
"Joining the station at this particular time in 101.9 RXP's history is almost too good to be true!" said CARTER. "The connection that the listeners feel to RXP is one that you don’t often see anymore and when you stand in that studio and talk to the audience and you really feel it ... to be given stewardship of that daily is really an honor."
