TRIAD BROADCASTING subsidiary MISSISSIPPI MEDIA/BILOXI-GULFPORT, MS continues its hurricane recovery efforts with a "COAST RECOVERY EXPO" this SATURDAY, JANUARY 28th at EDGEWATER MALL in BILOXI. All six stations in the cluster are promoting the event featuring forums and seminars with coast mayors, local officials, FEMA and SBA executives, along with the state attorney general, insurance commissioner, and transportation commissioner.
TRIAD SVP STEVE FEHDER said, "This is the only event of its kind that has gathered local, state and federal officials and organizations together to answer questions from the public about the GULF COAST’s recovery and future. In addition to the forums throughout the day, we have over 75 exhibitors. We could have had well over 100 exhibitors, but we ran out of room in the mall. Radio is making this event happen. Not newspaper and not television. The response has been overwhelming."
