Hudson River Radio welcomes new Station Manager

For Immediate Release
Hudson River Radio, Rockland County’s local on-line radio station, HudsonRiverRadio.com, is pleased to announce that Seth Cantor has been hired as Station Manager.
Seth Cantor, a North Rockland graduate, is best known in Rockland County as the voice of the Rockland Boulders baseball team. Cantor also brings extensive broadcasting experience at stations including WCBS-880 in New York City, Bloomberg Radio, NBC News Radio, and Eleven Sports Network. He has also hosted Cantor’s Corner on Hudson River Radio since December 2017.
Co-owner Brian Horowitz stated, “We are thrilled to have Seth on board. He brings the type of excitement and energy that we are looking to share with the Rockland County community, and he jumped at the opportunity to help Hudson River Radio grow as Rockland’s local station.”
Co-owner Neil Briscoe added, “Seth had a very similar experience in college radio to what Brian and I had. He understands the spirit of what we aim to do, and he’s eager to share his experiences with interns and other staff members.”
Cantor plans to expand Hudson River Radio’s local sports coverage, as well as work on establishing internship programs that will provide comprehensive broadcasting experience that students are rarely able to get in this area. He added, “Growing up as a North Rocklander in the 1980’s and 90’s, I have a deep appreciation for the value that local radio holds within the fabric of this community. I also recognize the importance of hands-on experience within the broadcasting industry and its role in shaping careers, which is why I am so excited to contribute to Hudson River Radio. Thank you to Brian Horowitz and Neil Briscoe for this unique opportunity!”
Hudson River Radio launched in June 2017, and has a studio located in Stony Point. The station provides programming around the clock, including locally produced shows about gardening, history, technology, and the entertainment industry, among others. Listeners can tune in through the website or by using the free app which is available in both the Apple App Store and Google Play. Horowitz stated, “We opted to have an on-line only format, as opposed to traditional radio, because the industry as a whole is shifting to the internet, especially with the increased use of smart speakers and other devices. Everybody has a smart phone in their pocket, but not many people use a portable radio anymore.”
