Local Radio Stations to Honor Boston Marathon Victims

Moment of silence planned for April 22

BOSTON -- 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, including those owned by CBS Radio, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, Entercom and Greater Media.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who were impacted by the horrific act that took place in Boston," said Gordon Smith, president and CEO of the National Association of Broadcasters. "This 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 take this opportunity to salute the first responders and the many unsung heroes who do so much during emergency situations."
