(wium) - The panelists discuss media coverage of the blizzard that hit the tri states during the first week of February.

Mike Murray said his family relied on Tri States Public Radio for on-air coverage and WGEM for on-line coverage. He found both to be quite good.

Bill Knight, who lives in the Peoria area, said the few remaining local radio stations with news staff did the best job. He was disappointed by local newspapers, which were not delivered until days after the storm hit.

Knight also said the reporting by the Weather Channel was fairly good.

However, there was a lot of hyperbole in the media about this being "The Storm of the Century." Knight wondered how many times we will experience a "Storm of the Century."
