One year ago, the Broadcast Engineering Conference featured presentations about disaster prep. One was by Joseph Pollet of Entercom in New Orleans, titled “Hurricane Preparedness in a City Below Sea Level.” The ensuing months brought New Orleans broadcasters the chance to find out just how prepared they were.
