Southeast U.S. Radio Stations Prepare to Keep Public Informed

Radio stations in Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina are working to keep citizens informed as Hurricane Idalia makes landfall. The effects of the Category 3 hurricane are likely to cause widespread power outages that will cut power to millions, leaving them with battery-powered AM/FM radios as the sole source of information. This emergency situation – on the heels of radio’s outstanding performance in Maui – will certainly give timely support and ammunition to those in Congress pushing the AM Radio for Every Vehicle Act.
