Hurricane Laura Ravages Gray, Cumulus Stations, With All Employees Safe

For Gray Television, the latest as of 11:30am Central was that all of its employees are safe.

At 1:25pm Central, listeners of a Cumulus Media station in Lake Charles — at least those with live streaming access — were told “the building’s gone.”
