Guaranty Broadcasting Covers Flood (Guaranty Broadcasting)

Topic: Disaster Relief and Recovery

Guaranty Broadcasting’s KNXX-FM, WBRP-FM, WDGL-FM, WNXX-FM and WTGE-FM Baton Rouge, La. provided 18 hours of live coverage of the floods that ravished the state. Louisiana State Police relied on radio to communicate with residents as other networks failed. “I just cannot thank you guys enough for getting the message out,” Gerard Landry, mayor of Denham Springs, La. said on WBRP-FM. “Our team was relentless,” General Manager Gordy Rush told Radio Ink. “James Gilmore, our country midday talent, who is also fighting stage 4 kidney cancer, produced 12 hours of Talk 107.3 programming over the weekend, then went to help another employee clean out his house after the flood water went down.”
