Broadcasters have always been “First Informers.” Not only do they convey information to the audience, the station has to maintain the broadcast throughout the disaster. Superstorm Sandy challenged many broadcasters. This panel will discuss how they dealt with non-ideal situations to keep the broadcast on during the storm, the aftermath, and the recovery.
