WMXD free gas giveaway this morning

Adult Urban WMXD FM 92.3 has given away free gas each summer for the last 3 years, and will do it again this summer. MIX92.3's Free Gas Fridays will kick off this morning, and the station will be doubling the offer. Listeners are encouraged to tune in to The Steve Harvey Morning Show at 7 and 9 a.m. to hear the gas station locations- the first 92 cars to arrive will receive $9.23 worth of free gas.

“This year's increase in gas prices has made this event even more relevant than in years past. Free Gas Fridays is another way MIX92.3 enjoys serving our community,” said Jamillah A. Muhammad, WMXD program director.

"The operation lacks clear operational policies and procedures, and roles and responsibilities have not been sufficiently defined or monitored,'' the audit stated...
