ALL ACCESS continues to receive reports of stations responding to MONDAY's events on the campus of VIRGINIA TECH. The CUMULUS station cluster in BLACKSBURG, Top 40 WFNR (HOT 100), News/Talk WFNR-A, Sports WRAD-A and Entertainment Talk WWBU, offered nearly wall-to-wall coverage of the shootings since early yesterday (4/16).
HOT 100 PD GIZMO explains, "VT is such a crucial part of this area, and we want to show our appreciation and compassion. First order of business is for our stations to attend a candlelight vigil tonight [4/17] on the campus. We’re also working on putting together a benefit for the VIRGINIA TECH Family Fund. We're asking people to send donations c/o VIRGINIA TECH Family Fund, University Development, 902 Prices Fork Rd. BLACKSBURG, VA 24061."
