On WSB?:Breaking: 4 Shot, 2 Dead at DeKalb Funeral
DeKalb Police are investigating this hour reports of a shooting at a funeral at the Victory for the World Church on North Hairston Road.
and which station has superior on air coverage? Doesnt take a brain scientist to figure that one out.
Granted, the world has changed since you could hear really good local news in Atlanta on WSB and WGST (then on 920). WSB Radio News didn't rely on pulling stories from the company owned newspaper or TV.it typically went the other way. TV and newspaper would monitor the radio station.
WGST also did a good job competing even though the odds were stacked against them. They did have the money press down the hall in the closet paying for everything (WPCH beautiful music).
I think WYAY all news is gonna help restore some of the local news standards on WSB. They haven't had any real radio competition for local news in a long while.
Local, local, local is the key. There are lots of places to get these national and regional stories but even in a market as large as Atlanta, there are limited sources to get local news.
