NBC Anchor To Host Springsteen Special On Sirius XM
June 8, 2010 at 12:16 PM (PT)
NBC NIGHTLY NEWS anchor and managing editor BRIAN WILLIAMS will get behind the radio mic for the first time ever as a guest DJ to play some of his favorite BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN songs on SPRINGSTEEN’s E Street SIRIUS XM RADIO channel, SIRIUS channel 10 and XM channel 58.
WILLIAMS, a NEW JERSEY native, will share personal stories about growing up as a "shore kid," discuss what it was like seeing BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN perform in the early days at THE STONE PONY and play some of his all time favorite SPRINGSTEEN songs.
"It was a very personal and intense experience to host this show, and I think that comes through on the air," said WILLIAMS. "As a native of the JERSEY SHORE (Exit 114), I first saw BRUCE in 1975. While my seats have gotten better over the years, the music never changed. It’s the soundtrack of my life -- it’s as great today as it was back in the day."
The special guest DJ session will air on FRIDAY, JUNE 11th at 4p (ET) and will be rebroadcast on SATURDAY, JUNE 12th at Midnight and 8a (ET).
