A week after a rare weather event called a derecho hit eastern Iowa causing massive destruction, reporters in Cedar Rapids say there hasn’t been enough national network TV or cable news coverage.
On Monday, a rare weather event called a derecho hit Cedar Rapids, Iowa. “This derecho has damaged almost every property in a city of more than 130,000 people,” said Elizabeth Malicki, news anchor at KCRG in Cedar Rapids. Malicki wonders why the national press has ignored this story.
WPVI Philadelphia doesn’t just broadcast the parade, it produces it in its entirety. More than 10,000 parade volunteers, marchers, dancers, singers and performers will participate in the parade this year. “We take enormous pride in presenting this wonderful parade to the city we love,” said Bernie Prazenica, WPVI’s general manager.
