Radio One/Cleveland Sets Victory Vigil
May 9, 2013 at 11:40 AM (PT)
RADIO ONE/CLEVELAND OM COLBY COLB has invited the CLEVELAND community to participate in a “Victory Vigil” in honor of AMANDA BERRY, GINA DEJESUS and MICHELLE KNIGHT, the three young women who were held captive for more than 10 years. Urban AC WZAK, Urban WENZ, Gospel WJMO-A and N/T WERE-A are combining forces to celebrate the safe return of these three women and bring awareness about other missing people and their families.
The vigil will feature guest speaker and victim advocate YVONNE POINTER, who will join with WENZ personality SAM SYLK and COLBY COLB and march across VETERANS MEMORIAL BRIDGE.
“We are so excited to see AMANDA, GINA and MICHELLE safe at home with their families,” said COLBY. “So many of our listeners wanted to do something for them so we decided to march over one of CLEVELAND’s most iconic bridges to honor these women and all the other missing and their families.”
RADIO ONE/CLEVELAND has also created an interactive platform called “Letters Of Love” for people to express words of encouragement.
