Miami, FL–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–October 14, 2003–mun2 television’s highest rated primetime music show is celebrating its first year with a huge New York party featuring some of the greatest artists in hip-hop, reggaeton, rock, bachata, salsa and merengue. The all-night event, which is open to the public, will take place at 10PM on November 8 at Club Exit and will be broadcast on mun2.
The artist line-up includes Special guest, the “Padrino” of “The Roof,” Fat Joe, the Diva of reggaeton, Ivy Queen, Hip Hop artist Don Dinero, award-winning pop, tropical and house band Ilegales, award-winning Bachata duet Monchy & Alexandra, rap and reggae singer Daddy Yankee, tropical urban artist Huey Dunbar, Bachata group Nueva Era, and musical groups Top 4, and Radio Mundial. It will also feature a special appearance by award-winning Puerto Rican rapper Vico C. “The Roof” anchors, Julissa Bermudez and DJ Frankie Needles, will host the party, which is being sponsored by Toyota. The event will be followed by a No Cover afterhours party at 5AM, which will feature the sounds of DJs Demi, DJ Bruno and Marc Vane.
“During the past year ‘The Roof’ has served as a platform for up-and-coming artists, dancers, and DJ’s alike,” said Yolanda Foster, Vice President of Programming for mun2. “The show has achieved a faithful fan base made up of viewers who, for the very first time, are seeing themselves on television.”
Indeed, through its bureaus in Los Angeles, New York and Miami, “The Roof” has provided a window where young U.S. Latinos are being represented, spotlighting the music that appeals to them, such as reggaeton, a musical form combining Hip Hop, Rap and Reggae, which originated in Puerto Rico and now, thanks to mun2, has dramatically been extended to the rest of the U.S.
A major component of the show has also been its interactivity, and viewers from all over the nation have called in and emailed to state their views and opinions. Their feedback has had a great impact in what the show has become today, featuring exclusive interviews, live performances and hot hip-hop and dance music hits, packaged within exclusive mega-mixes and re-mixes.
mun2 television is the new cable TV alternative for the young Latino market in the United States. As part of NBC Cable Networks, mun2 offers a fresh, new and authentic programming line-up reaching more than 5.8 million households. Launched in 2001, mun2 is a division of Telemundo, which is wholly owned and operated by NBC.
