ALPHA MEDIA LOUISVILLE stations (Top 40 WJDX [99.7 DJX], Hot AC WXMA [102.3 THE MAX], Urban WGZB [B96.5], Classic Hip-Hop WGHL [OLD SCHOOL 105.1] and Urban AC WMJM [MAGIC 101.3]) honored local legend, MUHAMMAD ALI YESTERDAY.
The five-station cluster made several stops around the area, giving listeners and fans a chance to pay their respects and voice their memories of the champ. Several large banners, containing ALI quotes, were created for people to sign and write messages to the late champ's friends and family, which will then be displayed at the MUHAMMAD ALI CENTER.
WJDX PD OTIS commented: “It was amazing to see the pride and love in the city for this man. He truly was a worldwide icon, but he was much more to the people of his hometown. We got to hear so many amazing personal stories about MUHAMMAD ALI from the people of LOUISVILLE. Even high school classmates of his showed up to honor his legacy.”
Added ALPHA MEDIA SVP BILL GENTRY: “LOUISVILLE has lost its favorite son and is responding with an outpouring of love and compassion. ALI is a remarkable Champion from a remarkable city!”
