EKB Named Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador by NOAA

PIKEVILLE, KY - East Kentucky Broadcasting has been named a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador.
The Weather-Ready National Ambassador initiative is an effort to formally recognize NOAA partners who are improving the nation's readiness against extreme weather, water, and climate events. As a Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador, EKB is committing to work with NOAA and other Ambassadors to strengthen national resilience against extreme weather.

  • Promote Weather-Ready Nation messages
  • Engage with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) personnel on potential collaboration opportunities
  • Share success stores of preparedness and resiliency
