The Rock Radio Network, based in Puerto Rico, has experienced substantial damage by Hurricane Fiona at their San Juan station WIVV.
“The station in San Juan and all the staff didn’t suffer any calamities. Yes, we were without electricity and water for a few days but other than that the San Juan station is running smoothly,” said Rock Radio Network coordinator Elizabeth Castro. “But the scenario is very different for our station (CBS) in the South. It was hit hard with flooding and we still don’t know the status of the inside of the building, since the water has not receded and there’s no way we can go into the building.”
The Rock Radio Network is a 6-station AM and FM radio network out of San Juan, Puerto Rico. It broadcasts Christian biblical teaching in a bilingual format. The Rock consists of the stations WBMJ / W258DT in San Juan, WIVV / W280GC in Vieques, and WCGB / W293DP in Juana Díaz, Puerto Rico. The Rock is owned and operated by Calvary Evangelistic Mission, Inc.
