WXIR DJ Profile: Andre Williams, Kickin' It with Roctown's Finest

Andre Williams began producing Down B-Low as a television program a number of years ago. It was recently renamed Roctown's Finest, and now airs on RCTV on Mondays and Fridays at 10 PM.

The television program incorporates local entertainment as well as short TV segments, including " Innersections"and "Interpretations."  " Innersections" features a diverse group of individuals within a community that are all, somehow, connected.  "Interpretations" is a suspense series.

Initially, Andre wrote all of the segments solo. He now collaborates on the writing with Rochesterian Shaun Huff. He proudly shares that people who initially appeared on the show and had no prior acting experience are now being scouted for other works, and that seasoned actors, such as  Ernesto Jam , are now reaching out to Andre and flying in from out of town to be part of the program.

His success with the television program led him to submit a proposal to be a radio host on 100.9 WXIR, RCTV's new low power FM radio station. He wanted to produce the radio show, which he also films as its being recorded and incorporates in his TV episodes.

"I wanted to do the radio program to provide easier access to the show," he asserts, pointing out that the on-air programming, streaming and TuneIn make it easier for people to listen.
