Topic: Disaster Relief and Recovery

Gannett Broadcasting’s CBS affiliate KYTX-TV Tyler, TX partnered with Alpha Media’s four-station cluster in Tyler to help the victims of a tornado in Van, TX on May 10 that killed two people and injured dozens more. The stations become a dropoff point for food, clothing and cash donations. During power outages, local residents had relied heavily on radio for news and information about the storm. After the tornado passed, Alpha Media stations aired information about the dropoff points and told listeners: "We are asking you once again to help our fellow neighbors."
