NTV will air a special music program "THE MUSIC DAY Ongaku no Chikara" on July 6th to commemorate their 60th anniversary since its launching, and Arashi member Sakurai Sho will serve as the main host.

Just like NTV's annual telethon "24-Hour Television", "THE MUSIC DAY Ongaku no Chikara" is also planned to be their  annual special music program. The broadcast network plans to hold a survey that is related to the theme of the year, masterpieces chosen from the survey will be introduced.

This year's theme will be "The masterpieces that encouraged Japanese people", and it will be broadcast live for 12 hours, which will be the longest music program to ever air. The main venue is the Makuhari Messe, and many great artists will gather there to perform. Archive footage from the past 60 years will also be broadcast.

Sakurai commented, "It was surprising enough that I would be the main host for the special music program for this summer, but knowing that it would be 12 hours long, I am still in doubt. Without getting crushed by the dignity of its title, the 60th anniversary since launching, I will try my hardest to serve this important task!!"

NTV is currently asking for requests for the "masterpieces that encouraged Japanese people" on their official site.

Additionally, there will be a music event "THE MUSIC DAY LIVE presented by 'ZERO'" (charged), to be held on July 7th, at the same venue.
