ALL ACCESS sends good thoughts to CLEAR CHANNEL Country KNIX/PHOENIX air personality MATT MCALLISTER of the station’s “BEN AND MATT” morning show, following a lightning strike to his home on TUESDAY (8/29) afternoon.
MCALLISTER’s fiancé, VANESSA was the only one home at the time and fortunately was unhurt, but the strike caused extensive damage to their brand new home, which they moved into just three months ago. The family will have to relocate while repairs are made to the home.
WEDNESDAY (8/20), MCALLISTER told the ARIZONA REPUBLIC, “"Our day yesterday was crying and then laughing. First you're trying to get your head around what's just happened to your home and the fact that you can't live there anymore. Then you're laughing, like, is this really happening to us?"
He has posted photos of the damage on the station’s “BEN AND MATT” page; see them here.
