“Ask anyone from the New York area about Summer Jam, and I bet you they have their own personal story to share,” commented Ebro Darden, assistant program director and host of Ebro in the Morning. “This is more than just a Hip Hop concert. It’s the party of the year where historic moments are made and the music & culture are truly celebrated. We’re excited to be back and thankful for the support the tri-state and the world have given us over the years.”
