710 WOR/New York will debut WOR Tonight with Joe Concha & Lis Wiehl, on February 4. The program will broadcast weekdays, 6 p.m.-9 p.m.
Hosted by The Hill reporter and columnist Joe Concha and best-selling author Lis Wiehl, WOR Tonight will be a New York-centric show spotlighting a mix of top news stories, politics, movies, television, Broadway, pop culture, and consumer issues. Additionally, the hosts will offer their views on the stories of the day from both sides of the political aisle and will take calls from listeners.
“The New York area is known for its diversity and 710 WOR will be able to offer listeners just that each night with a unique mix of issues,” said Tom Cuddy, 710 WOR Program Director. “Joe and Lis come from different sides of the political spectrum, which should make things quite interesting and unpredictable.”
“Our show will obviously talk politics, but we’re also going to offer up the kind of news and views that people deal with every day,” said Concha. “We want to tell stories people can relate to as well as empathize with and hope to make you laugh a few times in the process.”
“This show is going to be a one-stop shop in a three-hour package, delivered to your radio,” said Wiehl. “You’ll get hard news shared by two people who are news veterans and experts in the fields of law and media. Plus, you’ll get ‘water cooler’ news delivered to you by two hosts who are parents, taxpayers, pet owners, and pop culture enthusiasts.”
