Kiss FM Takes Open Line to Brownsville Following Murder of 34-Year-Old Mother

In the wake of the senseless killing in a Brooklyn neighborhood last month, 98.7 Kiss FM/WRKS is hosting a special Open Line, the station’s weekly public affairs show.  

Zurana Horton, a 34-year-old mother of 13 from Brownsville, was shot in the crossfire while protecting hers and other school children.  KISS FM and The Open Line hopes to generate a community discussion, bringing together residents and local leaders and panelists for this no-holds-barred town hall meeting.

The special edition Open Line Live: A State of Emergency, is hosted by Bob Slade, along with Bob Pickett and James Mtume. They will be joined by Tony Herbert and other community activists and the residents of Brownsville.

The free event, at the First Baptist Church of Brownsville, takes place Friday November 18 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. 

The church is located at 357 Chester Street, between Dumont and Lavonia Avenues.

KISS will air a two-hour portion of the town hall meeting, Sunday November 20 from 10 a.m. to noon.
