WQXR Host Terrance McKnight Commemorates Black History Month with Special Programming

With February being Black History Month, classical music station WQXR and Terrance McKnight have lined up special programming.

Throughout the month, as host of the Saturday night program All Ears, McKnight gives listeners insight into famous black musicians.

It starts on February 5 with A Musical Biography of Bill T. Jones.

“Bill’s not a musician… He’s a chorographer. When I watch Bill’s work, I saw or I heard similarities to what I do on air, and all about mixing genres,” McKnight tells FishbowlNY.

McKnight, since joining WQXR in 2009, has become a popular destination for legions of New York classical music aficionados. He was first heard in the area on WNYC in 2008. (WNYC parent company New York Public Radio purchased ‘QXR from The New York Times in 2009.)
