Delivering Radios to Puerto Rico

NAB recently delivered 10,000 radios to people in 25 municipalities in Puerto Rico, plus the U.S. Virgin Islands.

First Informers: Hurricane Irma

In September 2017, Hurricane Irma struck the southeastern United States. As Irma approached, radio and television broadcasters took to the airwaves to warn those in the storm's path about the oncoming danger. During the storm, local broadcasters provided lifeline support as 'first informers,' relaying emergency and disaster relief information. And after the skies cleared, radio and TV stations played a critical role in the recovery and rebuilding efforts of their hometown communities.

These feats of courage, dedication and generosity demonstrated by local radio and TV broadcasters are captured in this short film produced by Media Arts Professor Scott Hodgson and his students at the University of Oklahoma, and Chandra Clark, professor of Journalism and Creative Media at the University of Alabama.
