This year the Windy City has been awash in street violence as a result Chicago area urban-oriented stations, Clear Channel’s WGCI(FM), WSRB(FM), Crawford Broadcasting’s WPWX(FM), WVAZ(FM) and Midway Broadcasting’s WVON(AM) are getting together for a Sunday night simulcast, “Put the Guns Down.”

This is third simulcast on the topic — “to address the citywide violence prevention initiative, ‘Put the Guns Down.’” It will air 7–9 p.m.

A release says, “This commercial free radio broadcast will feature a talent from each of the participating stations: Tony Sculfield of 107.5 WGCI(FM), Sean Dale of Power 92.3 [WPWX], Alexx Dupri of Soul 106.3[WSRB], Glenn Cosby of V103 [WVAZ] and Matt McGill of WVON(AM) 1690. ABC 7’s Evelyn Holmes will once again join the group and host this special.”
