Boston Marathon

From Mike Brophey on WKLB's response to the bombings at the Boston Marathon-

As this story develops, we are breaking every ten minutes or so – repeating whatever information we have…street closures, hospital issues, injuries, college lockdowns, cancellations, etc. We asked our morning cohost Lori to come in and do news in the afternoon to bring more credibility to our information. We have ceased all contesting, and watching what songs we play.

The main issue is giving information and trying to calm people. We will also give listeners a sounding board on the air when we feel it’s appropriate.

We all are OK – although we had some people from our building on site just a couple of hours prior…
