CUMULUS Top 40 WAOA (WA1A)/MELBOURNE, FL morning hosts LISA and TIMMY broke the news about an early morning armed robbery and hostage situation at a nearby OFFICE DEPOT this morning, thanks to a listener who was working right across the street.
LISA and TIMMY's law enforcement friends and other eyewitnesses kept the info flowing live while the S.W.A.T. Team stormed the store to diffuse the situation. PD TONY BANKS says, "Chalk one up for the local guys! While other morning shows are 'piped in' to the area, it was the local morning show that kept listeners 'plugged in' to the situation."
