Signal FM is the only Haitian radio station to continuously broadcast
during and after the powerful 7.0-magnitude earthquake that ravaged the
capital, Port-au-Prince, and surrounding areas on January 12. Signal's
online news service kept operating as well. The station's equipment,
located in Petionville (east of Port-au-Prince) remained in service,
withstanding, remarkably, tremors to the building and broadcasting
aerials. But the true credit goes to the station's staff members, who made
extraordinary efforts and great sacrifices to inform the public during a
period of chaos, the station's managing director, Mario Viau, told CPJ.
