station WWRL expands Caribbean programming with 12-hour Saturday block
Starting October 3rd, 2009, WWRL 1600 AM, a legacy station serving New
York's diverse community of listeners, will expand its programming to
include local Caribbean Talk and the syndicated radio program, The
CaribZone Radio Show.
In addition to local, live and caller-driven programs (Saturday 12N -
7pm) featuring an alternating panel of regional experts, dignitaries,
Caribbean leaders and community organizations designed to keep the
community informed on a range of Caribbean topics and issues impacting
the livelihood of the population, the station will also air The
CaribZone Radio Show (Saturdays, 7pm - 12Mid, EST) - a LIVE 5-hour radio
broadcast linking the Caribbean Diaspora through music, lively
discussions and celebration of Caribbean culture.
"The goal is to create a larger platform from which all New Yorkers can
be kept abreast of issues impacting their lives and livelihood;
particularly the 1.5 million English Speaking Caribbean nationals who
call the New York metropolitan area home," said Rennie Bishop,
Trinidadian, Program Director and Host of "The Caribbean Corner,"
Saturdays 5pm to 7pm.
The return of Caribbean programming on WWRL represents an opportunity to
expand the voice of New York's fastest growing consumer segment. With a
significant percentage of the US Caribbean population residing in the
New York Metropolitan area, Caribbean nationals have definitely changed
the flavor of the city. From the hundreds of Caribbean restaurants
peppered throughout the 5-Boroughs, to the 3.5 million people convening
on Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn to celebrate the annual Carnival and
Parade, this community plays a major role in making New York, "The
cultural capital of the world".
The complete line-up of 'RL's new Saturday programming include: "All
Things New York": 12N - 2pm, "Working New York": 2pm -5pm, "The
Caribbean Corner": 5pm - 7pm, "The CaribZone Radio Show": 7pm - 12Mid
Launched in July 2007, www.Caribzone.com is a virtual community through
which the Caribbean Diaspora can interact and share vital information on
immigration, citizenship, economic conditions and connect with all
things Caribbean. The CaribZone Radio Show reaches an estimated
500,000+ listeners each week.
The CaribZone Radio Show is currently syndicated on key stations in the
US (New York, Atlanta and Miami) and the Caribbean (Trinidad & Tobago,
St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. John and Puerto Rico) and is hosted by Ian
"De Goose" Eligon (7pm - 9pm), Prince Kalunda (9pm - 12mid) and is
produced by a staff of experienced programmers.
Additionally, each month, over 30,000 visitors log into
www.Caribzone.com to listen to music, share culture, and feel all
right. For additional information and broadcast schedule, log on to
