The channel is using live reports from CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KFI-A/LOS ANGELES and KOGO-A/SAN DIEGO, plus information from the AMERICAN RED CROSS and AP RADIO. XM is also opening the LOS ANGELES and SAN DIEGO traffic and weather channels to be available free to all XM radios, while the fires remain uncontained.
