EMMIS Alternative WRXP (ROCK 1019 RXP)/NEW YORK announced TODAY (6/30) that "THE RXP TaKLIBERTY FESTIVAL" featuring COLDPLAY has been cancelled due to unforseen circumstances.
Rumors continue to swirl about WRXP flipping to a News/Talk format when MERLIN MEDIA takes over WRXP programming as part of an LMA in early AUGUST (NET NEWS 6/21). WRXP had announced its first-ever festival show just one day before the EMMIS-MERLIN deal was announced.
Refunds for tickets purchased for THE RXP TaKLIBERTY FESTIVAL are available at point of purchase.
WRXP PD LESLIE FRAM told ALL ACCESS, "Bittersweet after working on this for a year -- but at this point it's the right thing to do."
