The 6" pipe broke outside of one of the studios. It destroyed the studio of WXLO, and heavily damaged the other studios of WWFX and WORC.

Nasty. If I remember right, the Clear Channel radio cluster in Syracuse (WSYR, et al) had exactly the same thing happen a few years ago.

Some of the comments on the video are beyond asinine, but not surprising. It wouldn't be a big shock to hear that they've been taking abusive listener calls. As if dealing with a disaster like this isn't bad enough...

Yeah, but you and I both know, as engineers, to just shrug that nonsense off.

Oh, yeah. Besides, where else do we get really good stories to swap when we get together? :lol:
