New York City Pride is to be broadcast on live TV


New York City Pride takes place on Sunday, June 25, 2017. The Pride organisers announced that New York’s WABC-TV will be its official television partner for the event, and will broadcast live from the the 48th NYC LGBT Pride March. The NYC Pride March started in 1970 as a civil rights demonstration on the 1-year anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. Chris Frederick, NYC Pride Managing Director, said: “WABC-TV will broadcast the annual trek down Fifth Avenue from Noon – 3 p.m. on Channel 7 and also stream the event on its website,
“This important new partnership comes at a time of political and social turmoil in many communities. We’re excited to have Tri-state viewers welcome us into their homes for what will be an unprecedented opportunity for the LGBT community’s collectiven voices to be heard.” Dave Davis, President and General Manager of WABC-TV, added: “Channel 7 prides itself on being able to bring important, local celebrations of community spirit to as many people as possible. We look forward to making this year’s March the best ever.”
