The WIKY Facebook Page and a post yesterday

Mark Elliott – program director of WIKY Radio here.  Yesterday, a listener (Angie Walker Leslie) posted on the WIKY Facebook page about a news story.  I won’t recap the story here, as it was tragic and very personal for Ms. Leslie. (Click here for a link to the story in the Local News section of this site.)  However, in that post there were some claims about the news story that were not true.  We debated removing the post but thought it best to reply in the comments, which we did.
