WABC/N.Y. to Launch New Show with Constantine Maroulis
|RADIO ONLINE | Tuesday, July 6, 2021|
WABC-AM/New York will launch a new variety entertainment program with two-time Tony nominated artist Constantine Maroulis. "The Constantine Maroulis Show - Cuz Saturday Night Rocks!" will air Saturdays from 5-6pm, beginning Saturday, July 10. Maroulis will also join the station as 77 WABC Radio's Entertainment Reporter.
Maroulis, a native New Yorker, has a longstanding reputation in music, first coming into the public eye as an American Idol finalist. He has been nominated for a Tony award for his work on Broadway. The new program will feature hits from the '70s, '80s and '90s and interviews with some of the most noteworthy musicians, artists, and influencers.
"I will be bringing the high energy and music that fans enjoyed from my American Idol performances and starring roles on Broadway," said Maroulis. "What will be new for fans are my interviews. I look forward to having artists on my show and sharing behind the scenes stories with the audience while I spin amazing songs."
On Mondays and Fridays, Maroulis's Entertainment Reports will be heard on Bernie & Sid In The Morning and on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, he will deliver a weekend-focused segment, "Pop Rocks 60."
"Constantine is an immense talent both as a performer and storyteller," noted Red Apple Media CEO John Catsimatidis. "77 WABC has worked with him on several specials and charity events, so we are sure The Constantine Maroulis Show -- Cuz Saturday Night Rocks! will be a homerun with audiences in New York and around the world. We look forward to sharing this new show and his other contributions to our schedule all week long."
Maroulis added, "John has made wonderful changes to 77 WABC, both in programming and technological abilities since he bought the station. The new Studio 77 multimedia broadcast space he built is out of this world. I can't wait to grip the mic, roll cameras, and get going!"
