ATLANTA, GA, June 8, 2020 – CUMULUS MEDIA announces that its Urban-formatted radio stations across the U.S., along with Westwood One Urban brands, will air an 8 minute and 46 second audio tribute to George Floyd on Tuesday, June 9th at 12 Noon CST/1pm EST.

Kenny Smoov, Vice President, Urban Formats, CUMULUS MEDIA and Westwood One, said: “People are tired. They want Change now. They want Peace now. It is a beautiful thing to see people from outside of the African American community and from all over the world coming together to say ENOUGH! Let’s be the living generation that ends systemic racism!”
