BOONVILLE, N.Y. --- It may have looked small from the outside, but the WBRV radio station in Boonville played a crucial role in providing important information to residents after Main Street's devastating block fire.
WBRV radio DJ Brian Trainor found himself running back and forth from the station to the fire scene on Main Street Wednesday morning.
Brian tells NEWSChannel 2 that the phones at the station were ringing off the hook as school and road closings were being announced. It was then Brian's job to relay that information to his listeners.
"A lot of those things were trembling through my head and you have to keep them organized as a broadcaster and stay on top of it," said Trainor.
Its a responsibility Brian said he takes pride in.
"At the end of the day, our mission is to get the word out as quickly and as accurately as possible and however we are going to do that, we are going to strive to do our best," said Trainor.
