Philadelphia, PA. –  On Wednesday, August 19, 2009 and 107.9 will broadcast live from the Sound of Philadelphia Souvenir Shop at 309a South Broad Street in Philadelphia from 2pm-6pm inviting listeners to sign a card welcoming Vick to the Philadelphia.

Amidst the controversial signing of Michael Vick to the Philadelphia Eagles, One Philadelphia aims to show support for Vick’s “second chance” at life and his NFL career.   The contentious signing has been divisive to say the least, but One Philadelphia’s Operations Manager, Elroy Smith, believes that Michael Vick deserves a second chance.   “Michael Vick has a significant opportunity to not only write an empowering redemption story, but to also make a positive impact within the Philadelphia Community,” Smith states.   “There is a resounding majority of ex-offenders in Philadelphia looking for a genuine second chance at life.   Vick can be that role model that illustrates a successful and positive life after incarceration while also speaking out against dog fighting rings which is prevalent here in Philadelphia.”

As a demonstration of this support, 100.3 the ’s Poochman and 107.9’s Lady B will broadcast live from the Sound of Philadelphia Souvenir Shop from 2pm-6pm encouraging all Michael Vick supporters and fans to sign a “Welcome to Philadelphia Card.”

“Our message is not to endorse the horrific wrong that has been done, but to support a man that seems genuine in his pursuit to right those very wrongs,” says Smith.   “He has satisfied his debt to society, been reinstated to the NFL, and Radio One welcomes Michael Vick to Philadelphia.”
