Today iHeartMedia New York’s Power 105.1, New York’s Hip-Hop and R&B, announced today the debut of “On The Radar,” beginning Friday, April 15. “On The Radar” will broadcast Fridays from 8 - 10 p.m.
“On The Radar” is hosted by native New Yorker, Gabe P, and is the destination for artists, showcasing exclusive interviews, freestyle performances, and cyphers. “On The Radar” has featured artists such as B Lovee, Fivio Foreign, Kali Uchis, Coi Leray, Toosii, Fredo Bang, Kay Flock, Digga D, Aitch, J.I The Prince of N.Y and many more.
“I saw a gap in the industry for my generation,” said Gabe P. “I felt like rising artists and even some established artists didn't have a platform for them to come and feel comfortable, where they could not only showcase their personality in an interview but also showcase their talent in a freestyle. Starting independently, the platform has quickly grown to be one of the must-go-to destinations for artists when they come to New York.”
“Connecting with emerging artists is key to the relationship between listeners and the music they love, and we’re delighted to bring “On The Radar” with Gabe P to Power 105.1,” said Thea Mitchem, Executive Vice President of Programming and Program Director for Power 105.1. “This show will spotlight the purity, strength, and raw creativity of Hip-Hop.”
