NYC's Empire State Building Turns Blue For WQXR's 80th Anniversary
Friday, December 02, 2016 - 10:43 AM
Since December of 1965, the WQXR transmitter has sent out its signal from atop the Empire State Building. Saturday, Dec. 3, the iconic Manhattan landmark will turn WQXR blue in honor of our 80 years of bringing the best classical music to New York City — and today all over the world. The lights will come on at sundown, which is around 4:29 pm.
If you're in the city, snap a photo of the Empire State Building on Saturday night and share it using #HappyBirthdayWQXR. If you're not in the city, you can watch the lighting live on our Facebook page.
And make sure you tune into WQXR at 4 pm on Saturday to hear the same works that aired on WQXR’s inaugural broadcast.
