Preston Lowe: Mark McCrazy, Kailey Mills and myself were on a Plane leaving West Palm Beach heading to San Antonio Texas for a Morning Broadcast the next day.
As we touched down in San Antonio, Mark McCrazy received a call from Reggie D saying there are reports all over the place that Michael Jackson has died.
Of course like everyone else about this time except for Dr. Conrad of course… we assumed it was another rumor or hoax… Mark Told Reggie to wait on conformation from a creditable news source before having Eddie Santiago go live with any mention of this…
After paying a hefty internet fee on the plane to get on the internet… it was completely frozen… the internet was shut down… for sure at least 200 million of the 300 million people in the United States were trying to log on not including the rest of the civilized world.
By the time we got to the DRURY PLAZA HOTEL – RIVERWALK, the news we feared along with the rest of the world was confirmed to us. Every Channel on TV including Animal Planet was running news and comments and videos of Michael.
Made a very sad day for me and a much longer drive down to Austin to pickup Markel and Jasmine to bring them back up to San Antonio.
A Sad day to spend my last day with the two of them together. Markel made me feel worse by saying he wished people would have just left Michael alone and he would not have died.
Maybe that would have been true. We will never know now I told him.
