Coastal Crisis: Impact Alabama
On Wednesday, June 23, 2010, the Raycom News Network presented Coastal Crisis: Impact Alabama, a look at how the Gulf oil spill was affecting the Alabama Gulf Coast and how people in Alabama were responding.

The LIVE one-hour special from Gulf Shores focused on how the spill was affecting Alabama’s tourism industry, overall economy and wildlife, as well as what was being done to protect and restore Alabama’s pristine beaches. It featured interviews with experts as well as first-hand accounts from those coastal residents whose lives had been impacted by the spill. The show also featured a live interview with Alabama Governor Bob Riley to discuss the state and federal response to the disaster as well as his views on the future of the Alabama coastal region.

People watching the show on this web page also had the opportunity to participate in a live chat with local experts, including Dr. George Crozier, Executive Director of the Dauphin Island Sea Lab, and Bruce Stallsmith, professor of aquatic biology and fisheries biology at the University Of Alabama-Huntsville.

The special aired LIVE from Gulf Shores from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m CT on this page and on the following Raycom TV stations across Alabama and Georgia:

WAFF - Huntsville
WBRC - Birmingham
WSFA - Montgomery
WTVM - Columbus
