One editorial dated April 22 announced by Donald J. Trageser, Vice President of CBS Radio and General Manager at WEEI radio entitled "A Look at the Record." The broadcast covers the the importance of the Civil Rights movement to have a voice. Trageser mentions criticism received due to the radio not endorsing a planned civil rights march on Boston City Hall. The radio stood by not having a public position but did defend itself that it gave ample coverage regarding racial inequality.
