Keep tuned to 88.7FM-KUHF, Houston Public Radio, for comprehensive coverage of Hurricane Rita. Also, be sure to keep a battery-powered radio handy in the event of a power outage.

KUHF-FM’s award-winning news team will keep you informed of the latest developments, as will reporters from National Public Radio who have been dispatched to the Texas Gulf Coast. Meteorologists from Impact Weather are tracking the hurricane for KUHF-FM listeners.

The station’s regular news coverage will be expanded with reports from KTRK ABC 13, which has more than 150 reporters, audio engineers and editors, stationed in Galveston and other locations along the Gulf Coast, in order to provide live coverage of breaking developments.

The KUHF-KTRK partnership is good for both radio listeners and television viewers. KUHF-FM listeners benefit from the news simulcast with Channel 13, and KTRK TV viewers can listen to Channel 13 reports on portable radios in the event power is not available for TVs.

“Our listeners are getting up-to-date information from KUHF-FM, NPR and KTRK TV,” said John Proffitt, General Manager and Chief Executive Officer, Houston Public Radio.

The ABC television network has sent reporters from throughout the United States to Texas. KTRK TV has reporters from its sister stations in the ABC/Disney Group in New York, Philadelphia and Los Angeles reporting on the story.

During this storm, KUHF-FM is an official emergency broadcast station for the Houston Area, and will relay emergency weather alerts to residents of Southeast Texas.
