NEW YORK, Aug. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As Hurricane Irene approaches the New York metropolitan area, listeners of Florida's WFTL 850 AM will hear the most accurate on-air coverage of the storm as it is simulcast through Merlin Media's recently launched FM News 101.9 New York.

With WFTL 850 AM's simulcast, listeners in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and other parts of South Florida will receive critical information on Hurricane Irene that includes detailed weather forecasts from the largest FM team of meteorologists, understandable traffic reports monitoring evacuation efforts, and other essential hurricane preparation survival information.
