iHeartMedia Miami, iHeartMedia Latino and NewsRadio 610 WIOD provided coverage before, during and after Hurricane Matthew tore through Florida and up the East Coast. WIOD broadcast all related press conferences and added five hours of local programming as the storm headed toward the Florida coast. On October 6, all station employees and other programmers temporarily moved into the WIOD building in order to provide around-the-clock coverage. Additionally, the station updated breaking news alerts every hour in both English and Spanish, and partnered with NBC-owned WTVJ Miami and area meteorologists to provide the most up to date information.
