MTV is bringing back "120 Minutes," YAHOO! reports, "the network will announce THURSDAY that '120 Minutes' is coming back as a monthly show on MTV2 and as a weekly webcast, which has been dubbed '120 Seconds.' MATT PINFIELD, the VJ most identified with the original show, is returning as host." People have been wanting for so long for the show to come back," said PINFIELD. "I couldn't be more over the moon about it."
PINFIELD is currently hosting wake-ups on EMMIS Alternative/Triple A hybrid WRXP (101.9 RXP)/NEW YORK.
In the wake of that news, WRXP shuffles its lineup.
STEVE CRAIG will now rise and shine, transitioning from middays to host "The Rock Show" from 6-10a, MATT PINFIELD and LESLIE FRAM will slide into the midday shift from 10a-3p and BRIAN PHILIPS will remain in the afternoons from 3-7p. BRIAN DRELIO with CHRIS NADLER air from 7p-12a every MONDAY through FRIDAY.
"STEVE CRAIG is one of the strongest talents in the country. He had amazing ratings in middays in one of our strongest dayparts and truly deserves this move," said PD LESLIE FRAM. Personally I'm excited not to hear the alarm clock at 4a."
