ZIMMER RADIO's JOPLIN cluster has set up relief and collection efforts to help the people affected by the devastating tornadoes that recently struck the region. Dir./Operations and Programming CHAD ELLIOT tells ALL ACCESS that the stations are collecting food, water and money at the cluster's studios and have already filled one truck with goods for those in need.
Talk KZRG-A went into continuous coverage mode throughout the disaster, and the coverage was simulcast on all five other ZIMMER stations in the market. The tornadoes struck just three miles south of the stations' studios.
