DICK BROADCASTING WKRR (ROCK 92) and Top 40 WKZL/GREENSBORO employees were evacuated YESTERDAY (6/8) when a man carrying a hand grenade was arrested by police outside the radio stations.
WXII TV12 reports that police said the bomb squad was called in to remove the grenade, which didn't contain any explosives. The man was arrested, but police haven't released his name or said why he was carrying the grenade.
WKZL PD JASON GOODMAN, the ever promotion-minded guru that he is, told ALL ACCESS, "When I heard there was a man outside with a grenade, I first thought how could we make this into a promotion ... then when when I put my staff in 1075KZL T-shirts and told them to go outside, the police yelled at us to go back in ... oops!"
Here's a video from WKRR's CHRIS DEMM of the cops' bomb squad robot when you click here.
