New Host Takes Over Envision Networks®’ Weekly Country Concert Program
Envision Networks® is thrilled to welcome Carsen as the new host of The Live Ride. The weekly show brings listeners two hours of live performances from today’s country stars.
“I’m thrilled to get to bring my love of concerts to country fans just like me week after week,” Carsen said. “There’s something electric that happens when stars perform live and interact with the crowd, and I am honored to get to share those experiences every week on The Live Ride.”
Carsen is no stranger to The Live Ride. She’s been bringing listeners exclusive Nashville updates every week on the show. “I’ve been riding along with Marty McFly for over three years now, and I couldn’t be more grateful for him allowing me to take the reins,” Carsen said.
“Listeners of The Live Ride are already familiar with Carsen, so transitioning her from Nashville reporter to main host was natural and seamless. The energy and enthusiasm Carsen brings to the table matches up perfectly with the show’s high-octane performances. The Live Ride will remain a thrill for listeners week after week,” said Michael Lichtstein, VP/Programming at Envision Networks®.
The Live Ride is a two hour radio show that brings a weekly “concert” to country radio featuring live performances of current and recent chart hits by today’s biggest acts. As a Nashville insider, Carsen provides the most up-to-date country news, concert information and artist interviews along with the perfect soundtrack for country radio listeners to relive their favorite country concert experiences!
Growing up in Connecticut, Carsen discovered country music after watching Garth Brooks tear up the stage in a TV special, and became enamored with not just the stars and the music, but the city of Nashville. After graduating from Ole Miss and working in New York City, she packed up and moved to Music City. After almost a decade in Nashville, Carsen has been up close and personal with some of country’s biggest stars, but has never lost her passion as a fan. She is always travelling to concerts and events, bringing the audience the stories from the shows.
