In GTA III, Rise is hosted by Andre the Accelerator. The playlist consists of a continuous live set which is being played live from a nightclub called The Planetarium and broadcasts from a studio in Newport, Staunton Island. It doesn't feature commercials. One song is featured twice in the playlist, a rare occurrence in the GTA series, although it is featured to complete the "loop" of the station.
In GTA Liberty City Stories the station is hosted by Boy Sanchez and features one set of commercials.
