Prayers, sympathy and condolences to Bruno on the death of his mother. May God grant you peace, strength, grace, comfort and mercy!

And a big middle finger to TMZ!

Andre 3000 from Outkast mother passed away also unexpectedly this week but even when an AJC reporter sent you guys the tip, you never reported it. You DID report Big Boi's knee surgery though and that it happened while he was performing. You gave THAT story a spot but could not report the death of a Grammy award winning rapper/singer.actor's mother who has more awards than Bruno? They BOTH lost their mothers but you report about Bruno and about Big Boi but not a shout out to Dre on his Mom's death when he's come to your "studio" and appeared on air for you guys? Seems the least you can do is report both the stories. BOTH these men lost their Mom's and one even helped you guys out so it seems his Mom's death would be relevant too. I'm just saying...smdh!
