Katrina 11th Anniversary 
Special Event

August 27 - 30, 2016

Back by popular demand. The airwaves will again be filled with K5 special event stations as well as some bonus stations to add to the mix.

The event will begin at 00:00 on August 27 and will end at 23:59:59 on August 30.

Please keep our neighbors in Louisiana in your thoughts and prayers as they begin recovery from a terrible flood tragedy.

The theme of the 2016 Katrina Event is:

We’re Back, Beautiful, and Busy

We will use this year’s event to invite people back to the Mississippi Gulf Coast to see the wonderful progress that we have made with the aid of people, like many of you, from all over the country and the rest of the world. We could not have made it through the disaster without your help.

The event this year will not be a memorial but there will be a memorial station, K5M to remember those who lost their lives in hurricane Katrina. There will also be a Thank You station again this year to try to express our appreciation for the help people all over the country have provided to help make our recovery path more bearable.
