WITH-FM, WWDC-FM, WMZQ-FM Leverage Numerous Platforms for Storm Coverage (WITH-FM, WWDC-FM, WMZQ-FM)

Topic: Disaster Relief and Recovery

Clear Channel Media and Entertainment’s Baltimore/Washington D.C. cluster was busy during Hurricane Sandy. As operating manager Meg Stevens told All Access, "All [the group’s] morning shows," including WITH-FM, WWDC-FM and WMZQ-FM, "started Monday morning setting the scene of what was about to happen and making sure listeners were prepared." The station’s coverage included interviews with NBC-owned WRC-TV Washington’s meteorologists, a dedicated Storm Watch webpage with preparation information and storm path coverage and Facebook and Twitter updates on stations’ pages." After the storm, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment’s radio stations helped to provide "clean-up and power restoration information, road closure and flooding information and other travel info."
