Gawker Radio?


A source has told FishbowlNY that Gawker Media is considering providing radio content to WNYE in New York City. Although it seems an unlikely match, the source maintains that there have been some informal talk about a content deal. The WNYE website says,

”The future of Radio New York is shining brightly. While strengthening its lineup, and keeping its commitment to the City’s diverse ethnic and cultural programs, Radio New York will look to add to its following, attracting new listeners with a slate of innovative programs.

”Listeners should look for more local, New York content.”

Gawker’s Editorial Director Choire Sicha emailed FishbowlNY, ”If it’s true, I don’t know anything about it. That doesn’t mean it’s
not true, of course.”

WNYC TV — a municipal television station merged with WNYE — has of late been programming hipper, edgier fare, aimed after more affluent viewers, like “Full Frontal Fashion” and “Drinks with LX.”

UPDATE: Nick Denton iPhoned FishbowlNy: “Haven’t heard anything about this.”
