XM will air several of its oldies, country and modern rock channels for two weeks on noncom station WNYE, owned by New York City.
Earlier the station had aired XM country programming.
Each day the station will feature programming from a different XM channel. The choice of content is not accidental. In its announcement, XM programmer Eric Logan stated: "There are currently no oldies, country or modern rock stations broadcasting in the New York radio market, proving that even the largest media market in the country is vulnerable to the erosion of choice in local radio."
The station is managed by the NYC Media Group; it is part of the city's Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications.
