2014-BREAKING NEWS COVERAGE ( spot news.. Dec 2013 Ice Storm Coverage runs 19:17)

Mother Nature packed a punch of snow and ice just before Christmas. What it meant in Waterloo Region was massive hydro outages and devastating tree damage. Our 570 News Breaking News coverage featured a team of reporters scattered around the area,  extended news coverage throughout the day- breaking from regular weekend programming- which included live call-in Talk show as well. This coverage truly shows what radio does best, going live and long with its coverage of a Break News event to superserve the community and provide the information from leaders and experts as it happens.

These are some emails we received about our coverage:

“Thank you for being on air and helping us thru this storm with all the information we need. You are the best!”

“Hey Joe:
Like to take a moment to thank the hydro-boys in this crazy situation. Good job!!
I hope all the people get hooked up soon, especially the elderly.”

“This may be per-mature, but any word on what we do with all these tree branches as far as pick-up? / removal?”

ps: I just had a box of beer delivered in this bull-chit…out-standing!!!”
