WAFB-TV

“Hurricanes forced two sister stations to evacuate their studios.  Before abandoning their buildings in the wild winds and rains, they connected their Live Link to Baton Rouge and routed it to their air. My station then pushed updated weather and evacuation information to their markets until their personnel could move into our building’s Digital Studio and resume broadcasting.  Thanks to our Live Link network, their audiences never lost life-saving information when they needed it most.”
