FORDHAM UNIVERSITY Triple A WFUV/NEW YORK announce a partnership with NEW YORK BOARD OF EDUCATION/NYC MEDIA GROUP Noncomm WNYE (RADIO NEW YORK 91.5 FM) to carry "THE ALTERNATE SIDE," an indie music service, weekdays 6a-noon beginning JUNE 1st. The broadcasts, hosted by RUSS BORRIS and ALISA ALI, will continue to broadcast from weekdays from 10-mid from WFUV's studios in addition to thealternateside.org and HD RADIO.
The revenue partnership between WFUV, FORDHAM UNIVERSITY and the MAYOR'S OFFICE OF MEDIA AND ENTERTAINMENT comes at no cost to the taxpayer and expands the City's diverse radio programming already in place. WNYE has been carrying programming from UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON Noncomm Triple A KEXP/SEATTLE since FEBRUARY 2008.
"We are so proud to announce this partnership with FORDHAM UNIVERSITY," said KATHERINE OLIVER, Commissioner of the MAYOR'S OFFICE OF MEDIA AND ENTERTAINMENT. "We support all kinds of media, and this is a great way to showcase an innovative and creative group through the City's various distribution platforms. This partnership with WFUV provides the opportunity to improve our radio content and further support workforce development in media at the same time."
"FORDHAM UNIVERSITY and WFUV could not be more delighted with this arrangement," said STEPHEN FREEDMAN, Ph.D., provost of the University. "With this agreement, WFUV will bring our city's rich music culture to more listeners, and WNYE will be better served with local programming from a NEW YORK-based award-winning public station."
