August 26, 2009 at 4:01 PM (PT)
EMMIS AAA WRXP/NEW YORK is teaming up with WNBC-TV/NEW YORK to launch "NYFM," a music-centric series that "takes you behind the scenes and straight to the heart of the local rock music world." Hosted by WXRP PD/morning LESLIE FRAM and morning co-host MATT PINFIELD, the "NYFM" pilot episode will air on WNBC 4 on SUNDAY, AUG. 29th at 1:30a, with encore showings on SATURDAY, SEPT. 5th at 7:30p and SUNDAY, SEPT. 6th at 1p.
"NYFM" will go into the WXRP studios as well as a variety of locations across NEW YORK CITY. FRAM and PINFIELD will use their depth of rock knowledge and contacts to take viewers inside artist’s lives, venues, and rock history. "We applaud WNBC/NEW YORK for bringing this concept to television!" FRAM and PINFIELD said. "The Rock Show on 1019RXP represents and supports the best of what is new, local, and classic -- one hour it could be DAVE MATTHEWS dropping by and then a cool local band performs -- it is all captured on 'NYFM,' airing on WNBC TV."
