ENTERCOM Pres./CEO DAVID FIELD sent out a e-mail to all ENTERCOM employees regarding the tragedy in BOSTON. He thanked ENTERCOM/BOSTON personnel for their efforts on a horrific day.
"The tragedy is BOSTON is heart-breaking," he wrote. "We feel incredible sadness for the RICHARD family of DORCHESTER and all of the other victims of this heinous terrorist attack. We feel a great sense of loss and anger that this wonderful event which represented so much of what is great about our world could be so brutally violated by the cowards that did this. And yet we are inspired by the magnificent outpouring of selflessness and heroism that we witnessed yesterday. First responders, volunteers, and complete strangers risked their lives to assist the wounded. And so many others opened their homes to strangers, gave blood and assisted in various other ways. We witnessed humanity at its very worst and its very best.
"As we have seen in countless tragedies in our nation’s past, radio is playing a leading role in helping people grieve, process, cope, and get back on their feet. ENTERCOM is playing a particularly important role in rallying the community due to the prominence of WAAF, WRKO and WEEI and the many high-profile personalities at these stations who are so well-known in BOSTON. Our teams have stepped up to the challenge and are delivering outstanding radio and leadership to a community in need. They will continue to play a vital, leading role in the days ahead."
