Michael T. Jackson: “They should never stop the line of communication to the public. Information for men, women, and also children open doors to news about current events in our community.
Dracy Lockett: “WMCS 1290 was a staple in the community. The sudden cancellation of the program was a great shock to the community. It was the urban voice to such topics as politics, entertainment and great old school music. Shame on the decision-makers for silencing our voice.”
Antonia A. Vann: “WMCS 1290 going off the air was alarming! The material and information shared informed a large portion of the Black community. What are the first things that must occur in war? Shut down communication and information streams This is scary!”
Marquis Wilburn: “I think it was BOGUS as ever! Honestly, I’m wondering is it because they had been featuring such Black leaders as Al Sharpton and the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan?”
