The State News:

Another business that is still feeling the effects of power outages, is MSU's student radio station, WDBM (88.9-FM), the Impact. The sound of static is all listeners have been hearing since last Saturday, when the power to the radio's transmitter was cut by the severe weather, said Jeremy Whiting, the station manager. "We have been receiving a lot of phone calls about the issue, but until it is fixed there is nothing we can do," he said. Streaming radio is still available on the station's Web site, www.impact89fm.org, and all regularly scheduled programs can be heard on their Web site as well. ..
