WRBS/Baltimore (Bright FM) GM Steve Lawhon tells HisAir how his station handled the tragic event today of the Francis Scott Key Bridge collapse, “We embraced the shock, kept listeners informed, of course, and prayed on-air and adjusted our tone to match the situation.  We can see the bridge from on top of our hill – beautiful at sunrise. To see it gone is a shock, to say the least. The apparent loss of life is terrible, but it could have been so much worse. So, I’m grateful for that. I can’t imagine the impact this will have on travel and business, and probably the economy in some ways. But, like we have for 60 years, we’re here – encouraging our listeners and helping however we can.”
