for KOMA AM/FM. When Danny began with KOMA, it was about 12th
in the Arbitron ratings. Starting April 1996, the Winter Arbitron
book rated the KOMA "Danny Williams Morning Show" number
"The most difficult
time of my career was immediately following the April 19, 1995
bombing of the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City." Danny
stated, "I truly love Oklahoma and Oklahomans, and you could
absolutely feel the pain of the broken hearts and souls. It was
not a time for 'entertainment'."
The week following the
bombing, Wednesday, April 26, 1995, a minute of silence was proclaimed
nationwide in honor of the victims, friends and family. CBS Radio
taped Danny's commentary preceding that moment and the NBC Today
Show played it the end of their show the next morning, Thursday,
