Boston radio stations are planning a moment of silence on Monday, April 22 to honor the victims of this week’s Boston Marathon bombing.
The 60-second tribute will air at 2:50 p.m. — one week from the moment of the detonation of the first bomb — on local radio stations.
Stations owned by CBS Radio, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, Entercom and Greater Media are taking part so far.
NAB President/CEO Gordon Smith said the moment of silence “will serve as a time of reflection, honoring those lost and injured in this tragic event, and recognizing the countless acts of heroism and kindness that we saw on Monday and which continue today.”
“As first informers in times of crisis, broadcasters want to salute the first responders and the many unsung heroes who do so much during emergency situations,” added Smith.
