An update on Hurricane Harvey efforts from Cumulus Media Houston Top 40 KRBE. Program Director Leslie Whittle reports that while some rescues are still happening, Houston is definitely entering the recovery phase of this effort.
In the meantime, KRBE’s live, local coverage continues. Whittle said: “The whole crew is at the station, so Kevin Quinn, Freddy Cruz, Corinna Delgado and Phoenix (who have all been on the air since Sunday morning), are finally able to get some rest. At one time, we had over 600 reported areas of significant high water around the city, so of course one of the biggest services we continue to provide are road closure/high water updates at least twice an hour. We remain focused on keeping our listeners safe and informed, and I couldn’t be more proud of the job the entire KRBE team has done serving our great community.”
Whittle continued: “One bright spot came from Coldplay‘s concert in Miami last night, where they performed “Dreaming of Houston.” It’s a song dedicated to our entire region during this time of devastation. We began playing it today and the response has been enormous. As we begin to recover, we continue to ask for the continued prayers and assistance from our fellow broadcasters.”
