While he is unofficially the marquee quarterback of the Hip-Hop generation, embattled NFL star Michael Vick will finally address his legal woes to a decidedly older crowd. On Tuesday, August 28, Vick will hit the airwaves for the first time since pleading guilty to dog fighting charges. Vick will make an appearance on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, where he is expected to “accept full responsibility” for his role in the Bad Newz Kennels dog-fighting ring. Callers will be able to address Vick on-air, and listeners can currently submit questions at BlackAmericaWeb.com.
Since accepting a plea bargain late last week, Vick’s only media interaction has been through written statements given by his lawyer. The Atlanta Falcons signal caller is expected to directly address his federal conspiracy charges and reports of the Falcons attempts to recoup a portion of his $22 million signing bonus in this exclusive interview.
While the musical selections of the Tom Joyner Morning Show cater to listeners whose average age is 30 or older, it enjoys the distinction of being the nation’s top syndicated urban morning show. Tuesday’s show will air from 6:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. via terrestrial radio or online by clicking the “Listen Live” button on BlackAmericaWeb.com.
