Baldwin has hosted the radio series since 2009 and has also hosted the Philharmonic's appearances on Live From Lincoln Center on PBS. In December 2010 he was elected to the orchestra's board of directors.

The eighth season of the two-hour radio program, which is produced by the New York Philharmonic and syndicated both nationally and internationally by the WFMT Radio Network, airs locally in the New York metropolitan area on Classical 105.9 FM WQXR, Thursdays at 9 PM.

Concerts are available on the Philharmonic's website for two weeks following the broadcast. New York Philharmonic audio producer Mark Travis is the broadcast producer, and audio director Lawrence Rock is the engineer and music producer.

A pre-season broadcast of A Concert for New York for the Tenth Anniversary of 9/11 — In Remembrance and Renewal, a performance of Mahler's Symphony No. 2, Resurrection, aired Sept. 10 and can be found online until Sept. 30.

September and October season highlights include the world premiere of John Corigliano's song-cycle One Sweet Morning, with mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe; and In Residence: Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival, conducted by Alan Gilbert and featuring violinist Augustin Hadelich.

Baldwin was nominated for a Tony in 1992 for his performance in A Streetcar Named Desire. He was also seen on Broadway in Loot, Serious Money and Twentieth Century.
