Dance Declines ‘Equal Time’ Offer

The manager of a Richmond radio station that broadcasts a show by Joseph D. Morrissey said he has reached out to state Sen. Rosalyn R. Dance with an offer for her own show, but the senator said she never has received a formal offer for the broadcast.

Not that it would matter, because Dance added she would not accept it, anyway. She told The Progress-Index that she would rather devote her time between now and the primary to knock on doors and talk one-on-one with district residents.

John Fredericks, general manager of Goochland-based WJFN-FM 100.5, said this week he sent a letter to Dance, D-Petersburg, proposing “The Roz Dance Show,” a two-hour talk program that would run Tuesdays to Fridays between April 28 and June 11, the day of the Democratic primary for the 16th state Senate district. Morrissey, a former Richmond prosecutor, and state lawmaker, recently announced he would challenge Dance in that primary for the nomination.
