George “Geo” Cook PD/OM of KKDA/KRNB in Dallas, Texas has released a statement to The Urban Buzz as follows: “We are all heartbroken by the devastating and disturbing sniper ambush of Dallas Police and DART officers last night in downtown Dallas. Dedicated members of our K104 Street Team and KRNB Smooth Crew were there covering the peaceful protest and witnessed the chaos. We are glad for their safety. Our prayers and deepest condolences go out the families of the officers who were killed or injured while putting themselves in harm’s way to protect our citizens. ”
He adds “All of us at Service Broadcasting stand strong with our police department, city officials, community leaders and the great citizens of Dallas as we heal. We applaud our Mayor Mike Rawlings and our Police Chief David Brown for providing great leadership and resolve to secure our great city and save lives. As our city and citizens begin to recover from these tragic events, please continue to #PrayForDallas.”
Both stations are on-air with updates and listener calls…..the way it should be done! No matter what, the Urban station must always remain connected with the community. “ Desiigner, Lil Wayne and ‘em” will not perish if they miss a few spins!!
Kudos to George and his team. This is how you do it!
