The partnership between Triple FM and KAIT is going to be a model for other partnerships of radio and TV markets around the country. People in Region 8 do not realize how fortunate they are to have radio stations that devote so many resources to severe weather coverage. It's actually a very rare! Many radio stations do not have the type of relationship we have between KAIT and Triple FM. For those stations that can't aquire this relationship, they can hire The Weather Channel. This is where Cantore comes into the mix.
Trey talked about the need for radio stations to embrace severe weather coverage. Cantore talked about what to say and not to say on air. I spoke about having a relationship with local television stations.
The coolest part of the day was lunch. While we ate lunch, Montgomery Gentry and Keith Anderson played LIVE. It was awesome. I'll try to get some more pictures from the Triple FM folks. I'll post them later.
The funny thing about us all being in Nashville is that we are expecting a big snowstorm in Region 8! Neither Trey or I will be back until after the event is over! I'm a little upset that I will miss the snow in Region 8, but we are expecting a little snow here in Nashville, too.
Sarah is doing a great job filling in for me! She'll keep you posted through the snow storm! Enjoy it folks! Below is a picture from Nat Hooper. He's already seen some good snowfall in Oxford!
