WDYL's The Morning Sludge Addresses Virginia Tech Tragedy
April 17, 2007 at 12:18 PM (PT)
COX RADIO Alternative WDYL (Y101)/RICHMOND's THE MORNING SLUDGE addressed the tragedy at nearby VIRGINIA TECH by taking calls for nearly six hours this morning (4/17). Among the callers were the editor of VIRGINIA TECH's newspaper, COLLEGIATE TIMES; friends and family members of victims; local law enforcement and military personnel; and students listening to Y101Rocks.com from the campus.
SLUDGE and co-host SPECIAL ED provided the latest info, aired the press conference live, and encouraged listeners to give blood and attend various memorials scheduled today in RICHMOND.
SLUDGE said, "It was cathartic for the listeners and myself. Many of the callers, including VIRGINIA TECH students, are angry at the national media's coverage, playing a 'blame game' and using the tragedy as a platform for agendas."
