It’s been an extraordinary week. And, it was only Monday.
Entercom Communications President/CEO David Field took a moment to reflect on the previous seven days of events impacting the nation — and many of the markets in which his company owns and operates radio stations.
These locales includes Minneapolis, where Entercom has a trio of stations including News/Talk WCCO-AM, Adult Hits “104.1 JACK FM,” and Country “102.9 THE WOLF.”
“Last Monday’s unconscionable murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer has ignited a tumultuous week of protests and violence across our nation,” Field said in an internal memo distributed Monday and obtained by RBR+TVBR. “We understand the rage over this tragedy and other senseless deaths of Black Americans and fully support peaceful protests and other efforts to build a better and more just, equitable and inclusive nation.”
