Personnel at the Edward R. Murrow Transmitting Station outside Greenville, N.C., are battening down the hatches ahead of Hurricane Florence's expected Thursday night impact.

Despite of the threat the storm poses to eastern North Carolina, in a phone interview, Program Support Manager Rick Williford told Radio World their "goal is to maintain 24/7 broadcasts."

During initial pleasantries, Williford admitted to feeling anxious about the storm and followed up that statement with a colorful explanation.
