BENEFITING: SAGAL RADIO SERVICES INC
We are sorry to report that Sagal Radio’s offices and recording studio at 4151 Memorial Drive, Decatur, were completely lost in a fire in the early morning of January 28, 2014. Our live-broadcast studio on North Decatur Road was not affected. Most important, there were no injuries to Sagal staff or to anyone else in the building that we shared with other tenants. At this time, we do not know the cause of the blaze. The DeKalb County Fire Department will make that determination.
Sagal will continue weekend radio transmissions on WATB-AM 1420. Our website remains up but, unfortunately, the fire destroyed our capacity to stream programming via the Internet and to make programming available via cell phone and to run our training programs.
We have two priorities at this point. One is to continue to provide the voice for new Americans that Sagal has been for 15 years, a voice that has perhaps been muffled but surely not silenced. The other is to rebuild our capability to serve our audience and our community better than ever. Sagal has overcome challenges in the past and, certainly, the immigrants and refugees served by Sagal are not strangers to hardship.
We thank the community for their outpouring of support! Please join us as we re-build and continue to give a voice to those who have made America their new home and offer education and training for refugee and immigrant youth providing opportunities for a positive future.
The Sagal Radio Board
