Louisville, Kentucky radio station 97.1 FM WXOX has organized a national simulcast on August 13 for dozens of radio stations throughout the country to pause their programming in honor of Breonna Taylor, as Thursday will officially mark the fifth month since her death, according to a post on WXOX’s website.
“On this day, we will pause our broadcast to recognize the women who were stolen from their families and loved ones far too soon. Together we will celebrate the lives of these unique individuals — recognize the pain their loss has caused their communities and use our voices to demand the justice they deserve,” said the station.
One of Taylor’s favorite songs will play as part of the tribute followed by a special message from her family. It will begin at 2 p.m. Eastern.
The Hill reported that the station’s manager, Sharon Scott, confirmed the song “Everything” by Mary J. Blige would play during the segment.
