Michael Jackson Remembered: 2010


On June 25, 2009, Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics got a 911 call that would soon set off a global wave of grief, the likes of which had yet to be seen in this century. Michael Jackson lay unconscious in his bed at home, his physician unable to revive him. Three minutes later, paramedics arrived. But they, too, were unable to wake him. One hour and 59 minutes later, the King of Pop was pronounced dead. That the man many believed to be the greatest entertainer of all time had ceased to exist was unimaginable. Overloaded with messages of the tragedy, Twitter crashed. So did AOL IM and Wikipedia. Google, slowed to a crawl by the surge in traffic, appeared to be—as execs at the search giant initially believed— under attack. The media, meanwhile, went into marathon mode, honoring Michael while doing its best to capture the unparalleled outpouring of emotion from fans of all ages.

Tonight, on the one-year anniversary of Michael’s death, we present Michael Jackson Remembered: 2010. The live special begins at 10pm ET, and will be anchored from St. Petersburg, Fla., by Bob “Mr. Media” Andelman, along with four fellow BTR hosts: From Philly, Mutha of The Mutha Knows Show; from Dayton, Ohio, Darryl Williams of WDKK Radio; also from Dayton, Tony Peters of Icon Fetch; and from Nashville, Tenn., Janice Malone of Film Festival Radio. We’ll also feature commentary from such guests as rocker Tommy James, GC Cameron of The Temptations and Michael's one-time squeeze, Stephanie Mills.
