A year after Hurricane Maria, many outlets in Puerto Rico have resumed their operations, but had to make cuts on their content. At least two TV stations remain off air. While the media outlets have somewhat recovered, the individuals who lost their jobs in the process still struggle to regain their footing.
The FCC says it won’t cancel the licenses of TV and radio stations in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands that have not been able to get back on the air after the devastation of hurricane’s Irma and Maria.
With more than 1 million Puerto Ricans living in New York, several stations in the NYC market have sent reporters to cover Hurricane Maria. WPIX, WABC, WCBS, WNYW all had boots on the ground as the storm lashed the island on Wednesday.
