Apple Music's Beats 1 global radio station will return to the airwaves today (March 23) with one notable change: In light of the coronavirus outbreak, all hosts will now broadcast remotely from their homes.
"To prioritize the health and safety of its staff and guests, beginning today, Apple Music hosts will record their shows with field equipment from their homes, working virtually via FaceTime on iPhone," reads a press release from the company. "Tune in for an array of fresh and genre-spanning shows through out the week as Beats 1 remains committed to continuing to deliver its eclectic programming to passionate music fans across the globe."
The new programming kicks off at 9:00 a.m. PST today, when lead anchor Zane Lowe will host FaceTime discussions with the likes of Elton John, Miley Cyrus and Lil Nas X. Then, at 12:00 p.m. PST, host Ebro Darden will hop online to speak with Jhene Aiko.
