How to be a snow reporter for WTOP

WASHINGTON — The WTOP storm team has mobilized to cover the biggest winter storm to hit the D.C. region in four years, and WTOP welcomes your participation in its coverage.

You can be a WTOP “snow reporter” by tweeting, calling or emailing to let everyone know what’s happening in your neighborhood.

WTOP would like to hear your description of not only weather and road conditions, but also how the storm is affecting you and your family. Do you have power? Do you have a good traffic war story? Have you stocked up on food and supplies? Are your kids home from school, and if so, how are you keeping them entertained?

There are several ways to be a WTOP Snow Reporter:

  • Tweet your photos and observations using #WTOPsnow.
  • Comment on WTOP’s Facebook page.
  • Submit photos to our gallery.
  • Call the WTOP Talkback line at 1-877-222-1035 and provide a 20- to 30-second report.
  • Did you know you can record studio-quality audio on your smartphone and email it to WTOP?

    Here’s a short video to show you how:

  • Email the file to newsroom@wtop.com. WTOP will play the best ones on the air.
  • Make sure you have a portable radio and fresh batteries at home so – if you lose power – you can listen to WTOP for the latest information.
  • You also can listen to WTOP on your phone at 202-380-9977 or download the WTOP Glass-Enclosed Nerve App for 24/7 information on your phone or tablet.
