The wildfire on CATALINA ISLAND that threatens the city of AVALON has knocked CRAWFORD Religion KBRT-A/LOS ANGELES off the air.
The fire started near the station's transmitter site on THURSDAY and has led to the evacuation of over 3,000 visitors and residents of the island 26 miles off the CALIFORNIA coast. The station's studios are on the mainland in COSTA MESA, and it continues to stream programming on the Net, but the signal on 740 AM was off the air as of FRIDAY morning.
