WTAG drama in the storm
Thu Jun 2 19:25:43 EDT 2011
I was listening to WTAG on Wednesday afternoon during the storms. Jordan Levy was hosting as usual, and the weather was of course the topic of the day. They were updating with info as it came in when a little after 5 PM, Jordan mentioned that a co-worker had just come in from outside their studios, which are on Asnebumskit Hill in Paxton, just northwest of Worcester. Jordan asked the co-worker what it looked like outside, and he replied, "it's getting bad...I'm going to the basement right now!" Levy then said "we're all going to the basement, we're turning the microphone off, we'll be back when we can." Then...dead air. I don't think I've ever heard anything quite like that on the radio before.
They were back on within about 15 minutes with more storm reports.
