Beginning at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, WBT-AM (1110) will carry the parade with Ramona Holloway describing the action. 

Holloway said Wednesday that she's never broadcast a parade before and has studied the script in preparation for describing the action to her listeners. She plans to bring both the visual interpretation and the spirit of the event.

Holloway will be on the broadcast with her mom, Louise “Wheezy” Holloway, and Brent “Bandy Boo” O’Brien, her producer on the "Matt and Ramona Show" on WLNK-FM (107.9).

At 4 p.m. Thursday, WBTV will broadcast a tape-delay version of the parade hosted by Paul Cameron, Maureen O’Boyle and Kristen Hampton.
