The flooding in the MIDWEST is brutal, asCUMULUS/CEDAR RAPIDS, IA Country KHAK, AC KDAT, Rock KRNA,and Rock Hits KRQN, all located downtown, were evacuated today and were off the air, threatened by the flooding.
CUMULUS COO JOHN DICKEY confirmed the evacuation, telling ALL ACCESS, "We hated to do it, but we were forced to abandon the studios. My sincere thanks to CLEAR CHANNEL, SINCLAIR and other local broacasters for reaching out and offering studio space and facilities to get our stations back on the air. It's really wonderful to see this kind of cooperation between companies during such a time as this. I am not sure where we are going to be, but their generosity is accepted and we are in the process of going back on the air from temporary studios."
