As we watch anxiously from up north to see what path Hurricane Irma will take across Florida, we’re thinking of all our friends (broadcast and otherwise) in the Sunshine State, and of the broadcast facilities that will soon be facing nature’s fury.
In 2011 and again in 2015, we had the opportunity to spend extended periods traversing much of Florida and documenting nearly all the towers (and many studios) from Jacksonville all the way down to Miami.
Here are links to all of the pieces we presented in this space from those two visits – and here’s hoping all these towers and buildings survive the winds and the rain, that the recovery is quick and that our friends in Florida stay safe!
We have a great lineup of podcasts here on our site. While you’re catching up with your summer reading, don’t forget about your summer listening. Now is the time to make sure you’re up to date with Top of the Tower.
Our latest one features Donna Halper discussing her life in radio, from her time at WMMS when she helped Rush get US airplay, to what she learned from Arnie “Woo Woo” Ginsburg.
Don’t forget you can still visit our store to check out our other great products. We’ll be taking preorders for the 2021 calendar soon. Stay tuned!
