April 17, 2007 at 6:50 AM (PT)
CBS Top 40 WNKS (KISS 95.1)/CHARLOTTE OM/PD JOHN REYNOLDS reports that afternooner CHAD ROCK began wall-to-wall coverage of the VIRGINIA TECH tragedy yesterday afternoon with the phone lines wide open for listeners, and family with students at nearby VT to vent, cry and console together. And CHAD ran the VT Press Conference live.
Coverage continued into the evening as OTIS provided a platform for the public to share their feelings and thoughts. He had a live crew located at UNCC throughout the evening providing students with an open mic to share their feelings and fears over this unbelievable loss. One of the students on live with OTIS had lost a friend to the shootings at VT.
And this morning, ACE & TJ dropped all planned programming to allow the community to share their emotions over this awful tragedy.
