Westwood One To Offer Michael Jackson Special
June 26, 2009 at 10:45 AM (PT)
WESTWOOD ONE will remember the life and music of MICHAEL JACKSON with a one-hour retrospective special, "We'll Miss You MICHAEL." Hosted by WPLJ/NEW YORK air personality RACE TAYLOR, the program will feature exclusive MICHAEL JACKSON content culled from the WESTWOOD ONE archive vault, including live performances and interview material with his friends, family and the King of Pop himself.
"Over the last 35 years, WESTWOOD ONE has featured MICHAEL JACKSON numerous times in our programming," WESTWOOD ONE Chairman of the Board NORMAN PATTIZ said. "On this sad and shocking occasion it is only natural that we would want to provide access to a radio special featuring MICHAEL JACKSON in his own words and the comments of those who loved and were close to him. This program will be supplied to any radio station on a non-exclusive basis, free of charge. There is only one MICHAEL JACKSON and Westwood One is proud to salute the life of this amazing performer."
"We'll Miss You MICHAEL" will be available for stations to air beginning at 7p ET on FRIDAY, JUNE 26th, 2009 and continue throughout the weekend.
