Peter Rosenberg has made a name for himself in hip-hop as a radio personality on the popular New York City radio station Hot 97.1 as well as gigs in the sports world (ESPN, WWE). With years experience under his belt, Rosenberg is making his first foray into late-night hosting with the launch his new show Open Late with Peter Rosenberg on Complex Networks.
Just as he does each morning on Hot 97, Rosenberg will discuss a range topics on his late-night show, including pop culture, current events, and course, hip-hop.
“I'm so excited to partner with Complex on this new venture! This is a show based on my passion for music, culture, and politics that recognizes the diverse interests the generation raised on Snoop Dogg and Outkast alongside the generation raised on Kendrick Lamar and J Cole,” Rosenberg said in a statement.
Jack Erwin, Complex general manager content, said partnering with the radio veteran “is a really big deal for us.”
“Over the past few years we've developed a slate programming that hits so many touch points in contemporary culture, in the formats best suited to really explore the things we love, and late night is a natural next frontier,” Erwin continued. “There isn't a late night show that talks directly to our culture the way that Complex and Peter can, so there's no doubt that this will be something completely unique.”
Open Late with Peter Rosenberg will follow a format similar to most late-night shows and feature celebrity interviews and performances throughout the 12-episode season. The first episode premieres on Thursday (April 12) at 10 p.m with new episodes airing weekly.
