    During the live coverage, will you have reporters on the Beach get sanded, like Jim Catchatori for TWC?

    Nooooooooooo we are not from Texas - the Broadcast Tower is just south of DeFuniak. I also am a resident of SoWal.

    What do you think "The Heartbeat of the Panhandle" means - that we are in the Texas Panhandle?

    Oh my...cut me some slack here. I asked a question. I did not even know about your station or it's "The Heartbeat of the Panhandle" slogan. ?...are there any other states besides FL, TX, and OK that have panhandles? This TX gal loves FL and TX...even OK some days!

    Was anyone listening? I don't think I have AM on my radio. Ever thought about podcasting?

    Yes, Arbitron showed about 100,000 people listened during Hurricane Ivan. We were heard from Pensacola to Panama City along the coast and from Century, Fl past Marianna up into Dothan and Ozark Alabama.

    Podcasting should be enabled in less than a month.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    PS Sueshore, slack has been cut. :D

    PSS I am originally from Texas..................But for the past decade and as far as I can see into the future SoWal is where I live. :clap_1:

    I think we will see landfall between Panama City and Pensacola. That seems to be the middle area between the eastern most models and western most models. Of course this all depends how far west Katrina moves in the GOM and when it starts a northward turn.

    Re: Complete HURRICANE KATRINA Information

    I live in Memphis, Tennessee and my husband and I are supposed to be at Inlet Beach September 3rd through the 10th. I have been following the weather channel report on Katrina and know they are showing a projected path dead on for the panhandle Monday, although I do not know how they can predict where exactly it will hit four days in advance. And they say that the storm is going to be stronger than the one that hit South Florida today. Would appreciate any post updates after landfall Monday from anyone living in the area if it does affect the panhandle as to how bad it was and how things look along the beaches. We are staying on Walton Magnolia Lane off of Walton Lakeshore Drive just outside of Bay County. Thanks.

    Log on Here or at www.wgtx.com you can also listen to the broadcast Live on the web. We will have all of the information you need, i.e., any damage reports, power outages, beach status, road closures; boil water notices, business and school closings, recovery efforts, ect. Since we are a FCC licensed Media Broadcast outlet we will be given all of the pertinate information directly to disemenate to the public; especially from FEMA and the EOC here in Walton, Okaloosa and Bay Counties. We operate as a mouthpiece for them in times like this and coordinate our efforts with them directly.

    I will do my best to get with Kurt and see about also direct posting any and all information we get from the EOC or other Government Offices - FEMA, Florida Emergency Management, Gov. Office, ect. that we get to inform the public here as well. We will help you in anyway we can.

    Let's just hope that this misses us and we all can just relax on this.
