iHeartMedia’s KTRH-AM Houston was “one of those stations you simply cannot turn off if you want to know exactly what’s going on in that area and how the local residents are feeling,” wrote Radio Ink. Corpus Christi stations KKTX-AM and KUNO-AM provided wall-to-wall coverage, with KSAB-FM and KMXR-FM, plus WKNN-FM Biloxi, Miss., broadcasting in English and Spanish. All 850 iHeartRadio station websites featured a call to action encouraging donations to the American Red Cross.
