NewsRadio WGNS Coverage

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.
