FCC Says 12 Radio Stations Are Dark From Hurricane Ida.
There are also four AMs silent, including Lee Airwaves classic hits “The Pearl” WCJU Columbia, MS (1450) and classic country “The Legend” WHSY, Hattiesburg, MS (950); Shadowlands Communications religious “Sonshine 800” WSHO, New Orleans; and iHeartMedia gospel “Amen 940” WYLD, New Orleans.
Some of the stations reported silent by the FCC may now be back on the air since the Disaster Information Reporting System, or DIRS, offers just a snapshot in time.
The silver lining in the daily update is that more radio stations have checked in with the FCC as being on the air. The latest count released by the agency includes 31 FMs and 12 AMs as of 11am ET on Tuesday.
