Empire State Realty Trust, Inc. (NYSE: ESRT) today announced with its partner iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel) Media and Entertainment that they will give the ultimate gift of the season to New Yorkers and the world—five nights of Empire State Building (ESB) LED tower light shows, synchronized to a mix of classic and modern holiday music, broadcasting on iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel) New York’s radio station 106.7 Lite fm. Each show will be choreographed by internationally-acclaimed lighting designer Marc Brickman.
Four light-and-music shows will play nightly at 7 p.m. EST, beginning on Friday, December 20, through Monday, December 23, 2013. Videos of the shows will be posted each night on ESB’s YouTube page. Viewers will have the rare opportunity to help select ESB’s lights for Christmas Eve. The ESB Holiday Light Show Team will review YouTube views, iHeartRadio posts, Facebook comments, Tweets, and other social media comments to select the Christmas Eve performance, again with Lite fm on Christmas Eve at 7 p.m. EST.
“Millions of New Yorkers and more than one million people worldwide viewed the last Empire State Realty Trust and iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel) light show on Halloween. The iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel) and Empire State Realty Trust team looks forward to the first year of what we hope will be an annual holiday treat for revelers around the world,” said Anthony E. Malkin, Chairman, President and CEO of ESRT. “ESRT and iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel) continue to collaborate on these music-to-light show spectaculars to create anticipated, annual memories for major holidays such as Christmas, Halloween and the Fourth of July. Our light shows are becoming a beloved tradition, something to share for years to come.”
“When people think of New York City, they think of the Empire State Building, and when they think of Christmas in New York City, they think of 106.7 Lite fm – New York’s Christmas station,” said Tom Poleman, President of National Programming Platforms, iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel) Media and Entertainment. “Synchronizing the Empire State Building’s incredible LED lights with Lite fm’s Christmas music is our early holiday gift for all New Yorkers.”
