WDAS will not hold Unity Day -- its signature outdoor event -- and indications are that last year's 30th anniversary event was its last.
"For three decades, Unity Day has been a tremendous success for our community, sponsors and for the station," a statement from the Clear Channel station read. "An event of this magnitude and reach relies on both financial and human resources from a variety of entities, organizations, corporations and businesses. Due to the difficult economic times we cannot produce Unity Day this year. However, our commitment and spirit continue."
The station will sponsor the Soulful Sounds of Summer Concert Series at Penn's Landing and the Mann Music Center. The schedule has not been announced.
