MUSIC VENTURES, LLC Talk KFKA-A/GREELEY, CO is holding a fundraising campaign with BANK OF CHOICE to help those struck by THURSDAY's devastating tornadoes in northern COLORADO. The station and the bank made the first donation of $5,500 to kick things off; the bank's WINDSOR branch served as a storm shelter for children from a daycare center hit by the mile-wide tornado.
KFKA was able to stay on the air throughout the storms after a brief period without power, when the station's studio generator kicked in to keep the station going. News/Sports Dir. TROY COVERDALE tells ALL ACCESS that GM JUSTIN SASSO and hosts AMY OLIVER, LUKE SHILTS and SCOOTER MCGEE on the air with wall-to-wall coverage, with SASSO, business manager DAMON SASSO and morning co-host GEORGE GRAY reporting from WINDSOR as well.
