More cancellations are being reported as a result of a rally to take place on the Murfreesboro square this Saturday at 1:00 in the afternoon.
MTSU has cancelled Saturday's Contest of Champions band competition and have postponed the Expanding Your Horizons science event due to the protests.
MTSU has not received any information about protest related events on the university campus. At this point, the rallies are only expected to be in the Murfreesboro square area. MTSU cancelled their events to alleviate traffic concerns around the campus as outside groups drive into the downtown Murfreesboro area on Saturday.
People have been asking, is WGNS going to give live coverage of the Saturday (10/28/2017) event? Our news department is set-up around the downtown area and ready to give coverage, should problems arise. However, with the well thought-out plans of law enforcement, we hopefully will not need to go "live" on the radio.
WGNS will break-in on our regular programming with "updates" throughout the event and still photos, videos and interviews will be included on our website.
WGNS will have massive pictorial coverage of the event on this website. Check www.WGNSradio.com. And if issues arise, tune to AM 1450, FM 100.5 and FM 101.9. Your Good Neighbor is prepared to be with you through another challenge.
FYI: The permit for the rally is 1:30 to 4:00 Saturday (10/28/2017) on the Murfreesboro public square. The League of the South is expected to be joined by affiliated groups. Other individuals and groups are expected as counter protestors.
