Listening to WBZ (1030 kHz) out of Boston right now, and the local talk show maven is talking about the Marathon itself.

No breaking news yet.

My correction. Clearly the local news TV feed is covering something.

Illustrates how the 24/7 news cycle is an illusion on FoxNEWS.

One dead MIT security officer shot and killed on campus.

Activity has moved on to Watertown.

And WBZ, coming in clear here in North Carolina, is now mentioning the MIT news, but returning to their phone in chatter.

From UK Telegraph's reporter on the scene

It appears that one suspect has been injured and is in an ambulance. As of a few minutes ago there was a suspect face down in the road with armed police training their guns on him. It’s chaos and we’re not sure what’s happening but there has been a major shoot out in Watertown.

Thanks Onyx. I have been listening to 2 different Boston Police scanners plus the local Boston CBS affiliate. They have as of 5 minutes ago only confirmed one suspect down.

Insisting that these two are robbers on the run, and completely unrelated to the Marathon Day Bombings.

Guess this is why my feed to www.radioreference.com dropped suddenly. It must be getting slammed right now with people trying to listen to the live online feed.

At least I think this is why I lost their feed??
