President Trump offered what some are calling astonishing tweets. The White House says the president’s comments were rhetorical tweets as it relates to the UCLA basketball players. More from White House Correspondent April Ryan.

Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!

 Shoplifting is a very big deal in China, as it should be (5-10 years in jail), but not to father LaVar. Should have gotten his son out during my next trip to China instead. China told them why they were released. Very ungrateful!

 KMOJ-FM 89.9 LAUNCHES THE STATE’S FIRST URBAN HIP-HOP STATION

 The New Urban Hip-Hop sound heats up the Minneapolis-St. Paul airwaves today at Noon and in the process logging another first for The Center for Communication and Development/ KMOJ-FM and HD1.

CCD/KMOJ-FM 89.9 is on the air with KMOJ HD2, The Ice. The new HD Channel, found at KMOJ-FM 89.9 HD2, is Minnesota’s first Urban Hip-Hop format. The Ice will also present Public Affairs programming in keeping with its community radio FCC license.

Just as KMOJ launched in 1976 playing un-filtered Adult R&B, The Ice launches in much the same way playing Urban Hip-Hop music featuring established national and emerging artists from the Twin Cities and beyond.

“CCD/KMOJ is protecting its core demographic, an urban base in the much sought after 25 to 54 base,” according the General Manager Freddie Bell. He said The Ice aims at a younger 12 to 24 audience. Bell said KMOJ wants its audience to grow up with The Ice as it has with KMOJ-FM.

Combined, KMOJ-FM and The Ice HD2 look to super-serve its core and emerging audience with the best Adult Urban Contemporary and Urban Hip Hop music  as it services its license with Public Affairs programming.
