Rosenberg, an avid hip hop fan since childhood, grew up in the Washington, D.C. suburbs. Visiting his grandparents in New York on the weekends, he spent countless weekend nights listening to and recording New York radio legends like Marley Marl, DJ Red Alert, and Funkmaster Flex. After working in radio for 10 years at urban, rock, talk and satellite stations, he finally landed a job at his dream station, Hot 97 in the summer of 2007. Since the inception of his first show on Hot 97, Real Late with Peter Rosenberg, he has been praised by XXL, The Source, Scratch, and Vibe magazines for being one of the only purveyors of true hip hop in the mainstream media. Having Hot 97 as a soapbox has given him the opportunity to bring his unique and passionate take on hip hop and everything else to other media outlets. He has appeared on VH1, HBO, MTV, been quoted in The Atlantic Monthly and been covered by countless websites and blogs. Peter’s personal appearances have allowed him to expand his horizons even further. Whether hosting at SOBs, 92Y Tribeca, South by Southwest or the Museum of Natural History, Peter makes every event memorable.
Most recently, Rosenberg has added a unique live interview series to his resume. The Noisemakers series at 92YTribeca has given Peter the opportunity to be a hip hop journalist and cultivator of hip hop oral history. Noisemakers has been praised by XXL and The Village Voice as one of the best things to happen to New York hip hop in years. So far the sold out events have featured Gang Starr’s DJ Premier,The Roots’ ?uestlove, Q-Tip, Raekwon, and Talib Kweli."Real Late with Peter Rosenberg" airs Sunday nights from 12-2 am.
