Fresh Air for Comcast On Demand

WHYY radio magazine Fresh Air with Terry Gross will be available on Comcast Corp.’s Comcast On Demand video-on-demand service starting Wednesday.

“Philadelphia's leading public broadcast station is bringing host Terry Gross' prized conversations with artists, actors, musicians and singers from public radio to a viewer-controlled television experience for Comcast customers in Greater Philadelphia, southern New Jersey and Delaware,” the MSO said in a release.

Fresh Air on-demand episodes in February will feature Gross' interviews with late country-music legend Johnny Cash; actress and activist Jane Fonda; singer and pianist Ray Charles; comedian Dan Aykroyd; and actor, producer and director George Clooney.

In March and April, her conversations with gangsta rapper and movie producer Ice Cube; actor Tim Curry; actor, producer and author Gene Wilder; comedian George Carlin; and screenwriter and director Harold Ramis will be added to the menu.

“We continually look to add more value for our customers, and Fresh Air is a radio magazine of compelling conversations that will be attractive to our customers and representative of our efforts to provide a diverse array of programming choices," Comcast regional senior vice president for Pennsylvania Greg Arnold said in a prepared statement.
