WNEW back on the air in New York
April 14th, 2008
WNEW, progressive rock radio, is back - streaming live on the Internet and going out in digital mode at 102.7-HD2 in greater New York City. The original WNEW-FM was the legendary NYC rock station that helped break artists like Bruce Springsteen and The Police,.
At the helm of this new rock adventure is Programme Director Norm Winer, an award-winning radio industry veteran, best known as the man behind the music at Chicago’s landmark WXRT-FM. On the website, he writes:
WNEW.com is a channel and website created by and for people who are passionate about rock. Unlike most radio stations, who limit themselves to one style or vintage (e.g., alternative, hard rock, soft rock, classic rock), WNEW.com will reflect the broad tastes of listeners who enjoy a wider spectrum of music. Perhaps the most unique aspect of WNEW.com is our incredible audio archives, featuring historic concerts and live performances from the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s, as well as timeless interviews with a remarkable roster of rock immortals.
We’ve gathered and digitized hundreds of amazing moments from the airwaves of some of America’s great rock radio stations, most notably our namesake WNEW-FM, which ruled the airwaves in New York City for four decades. On-air visits were commonplace by members of the Beatles, the Stones, Led Zeppelin, the Who, the Dead and virtually every superstar you could imagine. And the amazing WNEW airstaff always made them feel at home.
