101.9 RXP (WRXP) “The New York Rock Experience” has announced the final piece of its on-air line-up by filling its overnight shift with internal marketing staffers Brian D’Aurelio and Chris Nadler. Nadler is the Lifestyle Engagement Director & D’Aurelio is the Director of Marketing and Digital Media for the Emmis New York Cluster including WRXP and sister stations Hot 97 and 98.7 Kiss FM. They will each form “From the Basement with Brian and Chris” 12a-6am on 101.9 RXP beginning July 6th playing deep cuts from the RXP music library every weeknight.
“Different times require different solutions” said Emmis New York VP and Market Manager Alex Cameron. “The idea is to give our overnights a little flavor and personality without creating a regular shift. So, to marry two rock passionate employees who fit the target profile and happen to have great rapport and natural wit seems appropriate. It’s a bit of an experiment frankly and these are two charismatic staffers that stood out to me as having the talent and enough music and PPM knowledge to pull this off. The fact that they are willing to try it on top of their regular day jobs is just cool.”
