Desmond Shaw Cali Wildfires
Airborne radio and TV traffic reporters have provided a much-needed resource during the wildfires plaguing Southern California. While some traffic navigation apps have actually been reportedly sending drivers toward the danger zones, a human eye-in-the-sky can report what Waze or Google Maps can’t “see.”
As the wildfires ravage Los Angeles, the New York Times says “traffic reporters have emerged as lifelines through the chaos, stars in an urban, multi-fire battle that could compete with a disaster film plot line from a Hollywood studio.”
As reliance on GPS systems and traffic phone apps has increased, radio traffic reports have sometimes taken a backseat. But as it has been in other natural disasters, the citizens of Los Angeles are relying on radio to keep them informed with up-to-the-minute changes on the location and direction of the wildfires.
“For people who are not familiar, they are kind of trusting [traffic apps] blindly,” KTLA-TV traffic anchor Ginger Chan told the Times. “You’re running into a situation that will change on a dime, and then it’s putting you in areas that could be danger zones.”
In addition to providing road closure information and commute time updates, traffic reporters have been acting as breaking news reporters during coverage of the massive wildfires, relaying information to listeners in real-time.
In 2017 during the Cali fires, the 60-mph winds grounded some aircraft, leaving Entercom news KNX (1070) Los Angeles traffic reporter Shaw feeling somewhat left out. “I definitely feel kind of hamstrung or helpless,” he said. “My city is burning and people are trying to get out of town and I wish I could be up above, helping people out.”
