KPCC just sent this email out:
As you may know, 89.3 KPCC’s transmitter on Mount Wilson is under threat by the Station Fire. We have several backup plans in the works, so if the transmitter goes down, we are prepared to be back on the air as quickly as possible. In the meantime, there are plenty of additional ways for you to stay up to date on the fire’s course and impact on our communities:
Listen to KPCC’s online stream, easily accessible from the home page at kpcc.org. Read the latest news updates, field reports and blog posts at kpcc.org. Join our Facebook page and follow KPCC on Twitter. Our stations in the Inland Empire (89.1 KUOR) and Coachella Valley (90.3 KPCV) will not be affected by an outage at Mount Wilson.
We’ll bring you extended wildfire coverage throughout the day today, including a special extended edition of AirTalk from 9am to noon. KPCC reporters are on the scene in La Crescenta and at the command center near Hansen Dam, as well as at the Oak Glen Fire near Yucaipa. We’ll be hearing from them this morning.
KPCC has done a great job covering the fire. The local television stations yesterday were mute. Er – moot. Pick one. Ironically if the television transmitters do go, the coverage of the disaster will remain the same.
We watched CNN yesterday to get information about the fires. Of course, Fredricka Whitfield pronounced La Canada, like the country to the north of the US. Ahem.
TVB has more on the transmitters here.
