Sean Cannon Brings New Sound to After Dark on 91.9 WFPK

(Louisville, KY – July 19, 2011)  Sean Cannon, former Deputy Editor of AOL’s Noisecreep.com, has joined 91.9 WFPK as the new weeknight host from 9 p.m. – 1 a.m. WFPK listeners know Cannon as the host of "The Buzz," a daily music news segment on WFPK. He also guests on the station’s nationally syndicated program, “The Weekly Feed.”"Sean has a wealth of musical knowledge stored in that noggin of his and has strong ties to the Louisville community and its music scene,” says Stacy Owen, WFPK’s Program Director. “He’ll be featuring the perspectives of his network of artists and music critics as well.” For example, Vagrant Records artist J. Roddy Walston and Village Voice music editor/blogging pioneer Maura Johnston will be regular contributors to the show, with more to be announced soon. Segments and guests will be detailed at wfpk.org as more information becomes available. 

 “Sean’s interest is in connecting people and music,” Owen explains. He’ll serve our existing audience well while exposing all of us to some fantastic artists he has in his own coffers; and he wants listeners to take part in the process."

 Cannon is also editor-in-chief of the decade-old Indie music blog Buzzgrinder.com. He helped build AOL's Noisecreep.com into the largest metal music blog on the Internet. He even discussed such endeavors on a panel at this year’s South by Southwest in Austin, Texas.

 A small-town boy from the foothills of the Appalachians who found his way to music via the Internet, Cannon has worked as a graphic designer, journalist, and concert promoter.
