Name That Composer

As I watched tonight's 11 p.m. news broadcast on WGRZ-TV, a story by Rich Kellman and Scott Brown addressed the difficult job situation here and how many young/younger professionals leave Western New York for better job opportunities elsewhere (I was hoping to hear Buffalo Geek interviewed).
What caught my attention even more was the use, starting with a nighttime shot over what may have been vehicles on the Kensington Expressway as Kellman took over from Brown, of music by my favorite composer, Philip Glass, including a piece from one of my two favorite recordings of his (along with "Einstein on the Beach"), "Glassworks." Could this lead to the use of music by Steve Reich, John Adams, John Cage, Brian Eno and/or Laurie Anderson?
