Radio Works Overtime To Inform The Public
Before Sandy even made landfall, WTOP's website was getting bombarded by local residents looking for information on the storm. WTOP.com logged over two million pageviews on Sunday, with 280,000 unique users. It's a story being repeated all over the eastern portion of the United States. From big market stations like WTOP, to storefront stations on Main Street in tiny towns. 1010 WINS in New York is reporting damage to its equipment and is now broadcasting on 92.3-FM.
Here's where you can listen to live coverage of Sandy, and see incredible pictures posted on station websites of the damage from the storm all along the East Coast:
Hubbard Radio's www.WTOP.com
CBS Radio in New York 1010 WINS and WCBS-AM)
Townsquare's New Jersey 101.5
Greater Media's WCTC-AM in New Jersey
KYW in Philly
Pictured here is New Jersey Governor Christie with with New Jersey 101.5 (Townsquare) Meteorologist Alan Kasper. New Jersey was impacted first by the storm and New Jersey 101.5 was one of the many stations in that state helping residents deal with the situation.
At Greater Media in New Jersey, the newsroom was working late last night to bring listeners everything they needed to stay informed and stay safe. Pictured are News Director Bruce Johnson and Danny Breslauer.

First, why ignore public radio? Stations like WNYC did a terrific job covering many Sandy stories and now the aftermath, without any sensationalism.
Second, I'm betting WINS' problem, along with other New York AM stations, has to do with its transmitter location in the New Jersey meadows. In my my own coverage of the storm, I said I expected some of those stations to be affected by rising tides: http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/doc/2012/10/29/riding-out-the-storm/ .

WTOP is a fraud. This is all a setup to get Bob Struble's junk-technology mandated into cell phones. It will never happen. During the recent derecho, WTOP's coverage was a joke. I live in D.C, and had no problems with my Verizon cell phone service last night or during the derecho. You all are frauds.
