While much of the East Coast is saying Hurricane Irene could have been
worse, rising flood waters and high winds have caused headaches for a
handful of stations from Virginia to Massachusetts. Rising waters at their
co-located transmitter site has taken New York Public Radio’s WNYC (820) and
Salem’s religious WMCA (570) off the air. Principle Broadcasting’s Boston
market ethnic WJDA, Quincy (1300) has lost its tower.
