Early Wednesday, Peter Rosenberg made a big announcement during Hot 97's Ebro in the Morning show as he revealed he will be hosting a new late night show on Complex, Open Late With Peter Rosenberg.
The show, which will drop on Complex's YouTube channel Thursday nights at 10 p.m. beginning on April 12, will put a hip-hop spin on the late night format. It will feature A-list guests from the worlds of pop culture and hip-hop, panel discussions, in-depth one-on-one interviews, and occasional intimate musical performances. Music will be provided by an in-house producer, and the program will be filmed in front of a live audience.
"I'm so excited to partner with Complex on this new venture! This is a show based on my passion for music, culture, and politics that recognizes the diverse interests of the generation raised on Snoop Dogg and Outkast alongside the generation raised on Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole," explains Rosenberg.
"This is a really big deal for us," says Complex GM of Content Jack Erwin. "Over the past few years we've developed a slate of programming that hits so many touch points in contemporary culture, in the formats best suited to really explore the things we love, and late night is a natural next frontier. There isn't a late night show that talks directly to our culture the way that Complex and Peter can, so there's no doubt that this will be something completely unique."
In addition to Open Late, Rosenberg has a number of other projects. He is a co-host on Ebro in the Morning, and also on the sports talk program The Michael Kay Show on ESPN Radio. Additionally, he's a correspondent for the WWE network and hosts a number of podcasts.
