Report: NYC's WRXP Cancels Coldplay Concert

The RXP Tākliberty Festival, the 101.9 FM WRXP-sponsored day of alt-rock at the PNC Bank Arts Center in NYC that was announced Monday June 13 and was going to have Coldplay as its headliner?

Well, it's been canceled "due to unforeseen circumstances," according to a Village Voice story.

Which actually isn't all that surprising given that the station sponsoring the day was sold the very next day to Randy Michael's Merline Media.

WRXP was one of three stations sold by Emmis Broadcasting to a company Merlin.

The concert was scheduled for September. Merlin is expected to change the format of the station no later than mid-August.


  1. What? Another format change? Goodbye...

  2. Yup and it is suppose to be news/talk. What a waste on the FM band.

  3. Seriously?? News/talk?? Why don't they just change to NPR radio while they're at it?? Smdh -_-
