Radio One Houston refuses to be defeated by Hurricane Harvey and commits to being live and local as long as the power allows.
Terri Thomas, Operations Manager, Radio One Houston is living on site at the station with a skeleton crew of dedicated talent and engineers; and working remotely with a team of digital marketers to ensure the listeners of The Box 97.9 FM and Majic 102.1 FM are informed, inspired and entertained while the historic rain counts continue to fall in the Houston area.
Thomas said, “This is worse than Hurricane Ike and an unusual occurrence. People are still stranded in their cars. Homes and personal possessions have already been lost, but this is our city. We planned for this. Making the station our ‘home’ is considered our standard operating procedure. As long as the power allows, we will be live and local providing our listeners with the real time information they need, the inspiration we all seek and yes, the entertainment to lift us during this tragic time.”
Jay Stevens, SVP, Programming at Radio One adds, “In times like these we see the continued importance of radio being live and local to service the need of listeners. We are proud of our team and standing guard to support them in any way possible.”
Though the media powerhouse has had challenges with the consistent transmission of Radio Now 92.1 FM, its management and local Houston team are determined to withstand the flooding and continue to support Houston.
