JOHNJAY AND RICH "ARIZONA's Morning Show" on CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 KZZP/PHOENIX and KRQQ became a large part of a memorial to the people lost in the tragic traffic helicopter accident last FRIDAY (7/27) in PHOENIX. At noon, a small crowd of PHOENIX citizens and news people began to gather on a corner near STEELE INDIAN SCHOOL PARK where the helicopters came down. Sadly, the same night, PHOENIX police officer GEORGE CORTEZ was shot and killed in a senseless act of violence.
Amidst a growing memorial of flowers and cards, everyone looked to the sky above as a plane circled overhead towing a banner that read, "In Memory Of Our Fallen Heroes: SB JC CS RK GC," the initials of the people lost that day.
At 12:46p, marking the time of the collision, JOHNJAY AND RICH dedicated an on-air tribute to the men who lost their lives on FRIDAY in an audio montage of news clips and condolences sent from ARIZONA CARDINALS' MATT LEINART, SUNS Head Coach MIKE D'ANTONI, former ARIZONA DIAMONDBACK and LOS ANGELES DODGER LUIS GONZALES and more.
