KAXL/Bakersfield (Life FM) PD MATT PELISHEK checks in with HisAir. Matt says, “My afternoon co-host on 88.3 Life FM, Aaron Perlman, does an annual hiking trip with his wife in the Sierras on the John Muir Trail. The Creek fire was dangerously close to them, and this morning at about 3:30am, they were evacuated by black hawk helicopter and safely brought to the National Guard station in Fresno. We are all very thankful they were safely rescued. They don’t know yet if their car is still there, as it’s parking spot was in the path of the fire. Hopefully Aaron will be able to connect on the show this afternoon with more details.”

The NAB announced today new dates for the NAB Show. The NAB SHOW 2021 will take place October 9-13, 2021, moving from April. Also the 2021 NAB Radio Show will be in Las Vegas at the same time. it had previously been set for September 21-24 in Nashville. NAB pres/CEO Gordon Smith said, “Through all of this we have witnessed growing concern and uncertainty over what the next six months will bring; enough that there appears to be a good deal of reluctance around participating in large events in the first half of next year. The pandemic remains a significant threat and the evidence suggests it will be well into next year before it could be under control in the U.S. We also have our own concerns around being able to deliver the type of event in April that will not only drive results, but one that can be produced safely for all involved and without significant limitations on the experience.”
