Several news sources are reporting that singer Mindy McCready has committed suicide. The Zoo will update you on this sad story tomorrow am.

This is NOT the same as teasing who someone might be dating. Someone’s life should not be used to promote your station in the same way you tease your Secret Sound during Impossible Gossip Trivia at 7:20am. Think before you post.
