Radio coverage of the Boston Marathon explosion incident (as of 3:45PM when I was on my way home) found that all the CBS owned FM's were simulcasting WBZ radio's coverage. WBUR was simulcasting WCVB's coverage. Lowell's WCAP was simulcasting WCVB along with breaking for local coverage, including live phone interviews with a couple of Lowell area residents who were near the scene. Howie Carr was hosting live coverage on WRKO.

On the TV side, WBZ, WCVB, WFXT, WHDH, WMUR and NECN in wall to wall mode.

My thoughts and prayers to all affected by this horrible incident.
