Miami, FL–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–August 28, 2006–Clásica 92.3 FM, WSBS-Mega TV, and WFOR-TV CBS 4 announced today their plans to reach the Hispanic Community of South Florida with a local co-branding preparedness campaign during the 2006 Hurricane Season.

“The national weather service has announced that the 2006 hurricane season will be very active. The odds that a storm or a hurricane can strike our area are significant and we at SBS are ready to inform our audience,” said Jackie Nosti -Cambó, Vice-President and General Manager for SBS Radio-Miami.

Brien Kennedy, President and General Manager, CBS4, added, “We’re committed to keeping this community fully informed whenever a potential storm threatens our area. Our partnership with Mega TV and Clasica 92.3 FM will help ensure that Spanish-speaking television viewers and radio listeners will be able to benefit from the expertise and guidance provided by Bryan Norcross, David Bernard and our CBS4 team of meteorologists.”

CBS4’s state-of-the-art weather center is staffed with dedicated storm tracking experts that forecast tropical disturbances and possible hurricanes as soon as they form in the Atlantic Ocean. Under the leadership of hurricane specialists Bryan Norcross and David Bernard, South Florida has learned to depend on solid coverage 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Renowned meteorologist Bryan Norcross will be providing Clásica 92.3 FM listeners and Mega TV viewers with up to the minute information on storms that could affect South Florida during this active season.

CBS4 Hurricane Specialist Bryan Norcross added, “CBS4’s partnership with Mega TV and Clasica 92.3 recognizes the importance of communicating with all segments of our vast and diverse population. Given our resources here at CBS4, as well as our partners’ dedication and professionalism, we’re confident we can provide our community with vital information they need throughout the hurricane season. Clásica 92.3 FM and Mega TV are key entertainment destinations for Miami’s Hispanic community. At the same time, the CBS4 weather center understands the importance and potential impact of a hurricane as it threatens the South Florida region. Together, we can provide timely and critical information to radio and television station audiences in the tri-county area.

Cynthia Hudson-Fernandez, SBS Chief Creative Officer and Executive Vice-President, added, “Mega TV will have live up-to-the minute hurricane information with our own expert, Sal Morales, who will be transmitting from the CBS4 premises.
