This is a big reason why I consider MedianJ's rants to be complete nonsense.
Among quite a few valid reasons, actually.
Considering Jim Gearhart, Bob Williams, Demenski and Doyle and the other staff were in the building and on air along with Big Joe Henry during the weekend coverage, the comment from Median re NJ101.5's coverage makes no sense.
They took calls from listeners from across the state looking for information and even took calls from listeners outside the NJ101.5 listening area who had relatives or property in the area, providing them with info or requesting that other callers provide it if they couldn't.
When I listened the calls kept moving and when I sampled NJ101.5 recently, host Michele Jerson was allowing callers to request help or provide status, but not to slam those who were trying to help. She rightfully and correctly ended a call from someone who was complaining about a Verizon tech sitting down somewhere even though she had no power. Michele reminded them that Verizon is a PHONE company and that many of these people have been working hard to fix issues and deserve to take breaks.
