NNR Radio is a radio station that plays over the 98.0 MHz frequency. Occasionally, a reporter is sent to a scene or a guest is brought onto the show to speak, though more often, the only speaker on the program is the host.

Crew

  • An unnamed host
  • Al (Reporter)

Guests

  • Dr. Jeff Galbraithe (former Chief Scientist at the Center for Disease Control)
  • Professor Jake Wilson (current military scientist)

Content

The content focuses on the Knox Event and the politics surrounding it. The host attempts to stay unbiased, though the tone shifts to be critical of the government's response as the Event progresses. This is true especially after the former CDC scientist, Dr. Jeff Galbraithe, is brought on as a guest and reveals that 'America is not ready for this.' This criticality is obvious when Professor Jake Wilson, a military scientist, is brought on as a guest.

One segment sees a reporter, Al, sent to the scene after the break of the Exclusion Zone. He reports over the military's brutal treatment of the infected and the refugees that remain. Al is clearly shaken at the state of the scene, even while he attempts to remain professional.

The final broadcasting occurs after the media collapse, when Pastor James Hartnell enters the station and transmits his last words. This is one of three times that media adds to the player's panic and fear. (+4 Panic, +5 Fear)

So, a huge area of forest and farmland has been cut off.
Roads blocked. The border patrolled.
Barriers intended for military use overseas used on home soil.
A massive logistical operation, and for what end?
The sectioning of an unknown, localized, contagion.
What is this outbreak? Should America be afraid?
We'll be asking the questions you want answered.

The President today met officials from the CDC...

... on the ongoing Kentucky outbreak situation.
We're expecting an official statement tomorrow, but White House representatives...
... have underlined that the large-scale military maneuvers in and around...
... the towns of Muldraugh and West Point are part of a 'long held and long term strategy'...
... that's in place to deal with 'security events and localized contamination'.
The message seems clear: they know what they're doing.
But shouldn't America know what they're doing too?
So far no word from inside the Exclusion Zone...
... and journalists we know to have successfully cross the border have NOT yet re-emerged...
... although there is reason to believe they are in the care of the military.
What is this outbreak? Should America be afraid?

You're on the NNR Network.
The end of another troubled day in Kentucky.
Here's everything NNR news sources have exclusively uncovered...
... over the last 48 hours.
The Knox Event outbreak is localized.
It is an influenza-like disease that renders the afflicted unconscious.
After a period of illness, sufferers regain motor functions.
They are, however, dazed and confused. Panicked and nauseous.
It's in this state, we are told, that military scientists are finding them.
The infection is widespread in the Zone, and how it spreads is unknown.
We have seen soldiers in HazMat suits, however.
The US Army is taking absolutely no chances.
We're promised a press conference to update the nation tomorrow.
It's there that we'll be asking the questions you want answered.
Tomorrow, all day. On NNR.

This afternoon: a press conference to allay fear and explain the Exclusion Zone.
All the while, fear and anger sweep the Nation.
Demonstrations in Washington.
City workers in hygiene masks on the New York subway.
Eyewitness reports suggest extreme flu-like symptoms followed by confusion.
The use of violence between sufferers has been reported.
People displaced from the Zone's outer perimeter...
... three days ago demand answers...
... now joined in camps by concerned relatives of those still inside.
In front of them? A strengthened military blockade.
South of Louisville. Below the Ohio River.
The area remains ringfenced by troops from local military bases.
Equipment due to be deployed overseas brought out to fight the infection.
The question remains: why can't we speak to them?

However he underlined there was 'no evidence' of fatalities.
Here is the full statement, recorded just moments ago.

McGrew:

I am making this statement at 11AM on the 14th July 1993.
There are many rumors circulating. Many falsehoods.
This is an appeal for calm.
I can confirm there has been an outbreak.
The ailment is, as yet, unidentified.
It is flu-like. It leads to panic. It leads to confusion.
There is NO evidence of fatalities within the Exclusion Zone.
We are using judged and judicious force to maintain the border.
Warning shots have been fired.
No civilians have been harmed.
We must ensure that this infection is not allowed to spread.
I am in hourly contact with the President on this matter.
The no-fly zone will remain in place for the foreseeable future.
At this time, we will take no questions.

This is a distressing time.
The situation in Kentucky is unexpected and saddening.
My first thoughts are with the friends and families of those within the Zone.
People have been separated, folk have been evacuated...
I understand the difficulties facing us.
However, I have faith in the fine people of the Center for Disease Control...
... to get to the root of the panic and confusion within the Exclusion Zone.
I have faith in our Servicemen and Women to fulfill their duties...
... and for General John McGrew to command them with the foresight and dedication...
... he has shown throughout his exemplary career.
It is a distressing time America, but you are in safe hands.
Thank you.

Host:

You're on the NNR Network.
With us this morning is Dr Jeff Galbraithe...
... former Chief Scientist at the Center for Disease Control.
What are your thoughts on the Knox situation, Jeff?

Galbraithe:

Outrage.
The way it's being handled...
This is what happens: year after year, cut after cut...
Department after department shut down.
This sort of inefficiency. This lack of respect. This...

Host:

Dr Galbraithe: what's going on in there?

Galbraithe:

Well, there's a very communicable illness. Clearly.
A fever, followed by other - perhaps lasting - bodily impediments.
They're saying it's contained, so I can only imagine...
...that the initial spread has slowed.
They think it's no longer easily communicable.

Host:

But you don't believe in their judgement?

Galbraithe:

America is not ready for this.
We haven't been ready for a long time.
We all know which administration is to blame.
I won't spell it out.
We are reliant on men with tanks rolling out and sitting on roads.
You don't solve problems like this by pointing a gun.

Host:

But what is it? Do believe the reports of violence?

Galbraithe:

I only know there's more to it than what we are told.
With this administration you can take that as a given.

Host:

Thank you Dr Galbraithe.

As the day dawned on those impacted by the Knox Exclusion Zone.
A fresh statement has been released to media and obtained by NNR.
General John McGrew has apologised for 'a lack of clarity'.
He underlines, however, that the outbreak IS contained.
Disease control expert Dr Jeff Galbraithe, however...
...has poured cold water on these claims.
Formerly the Chief Scientist at the Center for Disease Control...
...earlier this morning on NNR he claimed he felt 'outrage'.

Galbraithe:

America is not ready for this.
We haven't been ready for a long time.

Host:

A demonstration is set to take place in Washington DC this afternoon...
... where those unhappy with the President's stance aim to make their voices heard.
They want answers? Is this a result of the area's chemical testing in the sixties?
Or is this just the Raleigh outbreak all over again?
Whether they get answers or not, a strong police presence is expected.

Now we're here in the primary military camp south of Louisville.
NNR have exclusive access to General John McGrew's operations today.
Let me introduce you to Professor Jake Wilson.
Now Professor Wilson, I understand that you're a scientist working with the military?

Wilson:

I am, and I'm here to put a few fears to rest.
People in there: they're in a bad way, but they're still standing.
The symptoms are flu-like, then it's panic and confusion.
The situation remains volatile.
We think it's slowed, maybe transmission has... uh...
It remains volatile. We think it's slowed.

Host:

Will they recover?

Wilson:

At this point in time we have no reason to believe they won't recover.

Host:

Why can't we talk to them Jake?

Wilson:

We're actually talking to Knox Telecommunications about that right now.
There's a lot of confusion. It could distress.
At this point in time we have no reason to believe they won't recover.

Host:

You really think that's a good enough answer for America?

Wilson:

Uh. We have the very best people looking into the samples we've taken.

Host:

Jeff Galbraithe, former head scientist at the CDC, says America isn't ready for this.
That chronic underfunding has left us unprepared.
What's your take?

Wilson:

I'm sorry, but that kinda talk's not my place.
We've got a guy who handles this stuff, I'll introduce...

Good evening. This is NNR.
Tonight: public anger explodes onto the streets.
A demonstration in Washington DC turned ugly this afternoon.
As protesters were denied access to the Mall...
... a proposed march on the White House ends with dramatic scenes.
Objects were hurled at the police, and the crowd forced back.
At least twenty individuals have found themselves under arrest.
Meanwhile reports of chronic governmental underfunding...
... in disease control just won't go away.
The military insist that the spread of flu-like symptoms...
...within the Knox Event has slowed.
But refuse to speculate on the 'confusion' now found within the Exclusion Zone.
Meanwhile, Knox Telecommunications confirm that phone lines have been down...
... in the area from several days BEFORE the incident.
This isn't enough to calm America.

Guest1:

My aunt's in there. Why can't I hear her?
Why can't they tell us the truth!

Guest2:

What am I doing? I'm panic-buying. What does it look like?

To this end I will be talking to the General and the CDC today.

We have labs set up inside the Zone now.

Public anger at the Government's handling of the Knox Event...
...continues to spill out onto the streets.
A confirmed fatality in New York, and many injured in Miami.
A stand-off between armed locals and police forces in Missouri was calmed...
...with water cannons and tear gas.
Meanwhile, the outbreak is said to be contained while...
... tests on the recovery of those afflicted are carried out...
...inside the Zone.
To further secure the incident, the Exclusion Zone has been widened.
Everyone within the new perimeter has been moved to temporary camps.
The reason? 'To remove any element of doubt' that...
... the Knox Event is being dealt with safely and responsibly.
Displaced locals, however, were quick to criticise the move.

Guest:

They came when it got dark - threw me and my boy in a truck!
Said it's for our safety! I said 'safety from what?'
I heard rumors y'all wouldn't believe.
I heard are people trying to escape from inside.

Shocking pictures have emerged from the Exclusion Zone.
Earlier today the President discussed a 'receding likelihood'...
... of recovery for those afflicted by the Knox Event.
Photography leaked from the Exclusion Zone, however, paints a...

Some listeners will find the following description shocking.
The photo is of a crowded street, but in focus is a man.
His age thirty. His clothing bloodstained.
One arm is raised as if in greeting.
The other is missing.
He is bloody. Covered in what would appear to be bite marks.
Or perhaps wounds inflicted by a bladed weapon.
He is still standing. He is apparently unharmed.
We have established the validity of this photograph.
We would also remind listeners that throughout it all - the message has been:
The Knox Event is contained.
The public have been shielded, rightly or wrongly, from a truth.
But the Knox Event IS contained.

You're on the NNR Network.
Survivors are reporting developments on the perimeter.
The Primary Exclusion Zone camp has been compromised.
Running battles between civilians and military enforcement...
... resulted in the deployment of tear gas and later...
... gunfire.
The conflict was nearing an end when...
When a huge movement of people came from INSIDE the Zone.
Hundreds of people - thought to be infected - entered the area.
The ground is littered with the dead and the dying.
It's impossible to tell who has the infection, and who does not.

Guest:

I was in there. I got away.
Look at this. Look at my arm.
One of them got to me. Sunk her teeth right in.
What are they saying?
Do you know what this means?
Does this mean I'm infected?
Don't look at me like that!
Screw you man! Fu-

This is NNR.
Horrific events have played out in Kentucky.
Pitched battles between civilians and crowd control experts...
...resulted in sporadic gunfire and casualties throughout yesterday afternoon.
At one point tear gas was deployed and...
... during a break in the fighting...
... a wave of infected came from the South.
Defences were overwhelmed.
A considered assault by military forces took place.
The death toll is in the hundreds.
In terms of the infected... many hundreds more.
Their bodies lie together now, all as one.
Crowds of people have escaped the chaos.
Some on foot. Some in vehicles.
Some themselves victim to fluid contact with the infected.
In tense scenes: a military convoy is moving alongside them.
The Knox Event is compromised.

Good morning. This is NNR.
Our reporter is on Route 31W south of Louisville.
Al. Al can you hear me?

Al:

I can.
Eyewitness accounts suggest a scene of devastation to the South.
Unburied bodies left on the ground.
An eerie silence.
People are running.
I'm seeing occasional conflicts on the road.
People are doing their best to keep separate.
The Event's military force now absent...
Apart from some occasionally seen away from the crowd...
Suspicions and emotions are running high.
I'm standing next to the body of a man...
... apparently injured by the infected assault.
Now he lies dead. A bullet wound to the chest.
What the infected began, the uninfected have finished.
Anarchy reigns in Kentucky this morning.
Back to the studio.

This is NNR. Good afternoon.
Chaos in Louisville.
Traffic gridlock and violent confrontations...
...during a mass surge to the North.
Louisville officials have urged residents to stay in their homes.
A request now seeming futile - with chaos on the Interstate...
... and huge lines at gas stations.
Many are driving, some are even walking.
Their aim? To get north. Over the Ohio river.
While confrontations with those displaced by yesterday's horror...
...are breaking out throughout the city.
Our reporter submitted this report.
We apologise for its emotive content.

Al:

I've seen... infected people outside of the Zone.
There was an attack at a rest stop.
A child, a child that was thought to be sleeping.
He suddenly awoke, and inflicted a wound on his mother.
A crowd formed.
I walked away. I don't know what happened next.
I'm sorry.
I just didn't want to know.
I couldn't.

There are people here who have had NO contact with the infected.
They're running fevers. They're incapacitated.
Without urgent medical attention many will soon die.
Medical attention, right now, is yet to arrive.
The Knox Infection is spreading without fluid contact!
We repeat: the Knox Infection is spreading without fluid contact!

Host:

Before we were handed this... shocking news...

You're on the NNR Network.
Good morning.
We have confirmation that the Knox Event infection is...
...spreading without ANY contact with an infected body.
Flu-like symptoms, panic, confusion...
Symptoms that result in incapacitation and, possibly, death.
Or a status much like it.
The President's Office has requested America not to panic.
A statement reads:
Stay in your homes. Avoid public places.'
Emergency teams are en route.'
Mass movement on major roads will delay help being sent'.
The curfew will remain in place'
God Bless America'

The Knox Event infection is spreading in Kentucky.
How it is contracted remains unknown.
The illness that precedes... Knox Event symptoms...
...can enter the human body WITHOUT fluid contact.
Huge numbers of people - men, women and children - are falling ill all over Louisville.
No-one knows why, or how.
People are...
...starting to change.
Avoid them if you can.
Again, the statement by the President's Office reads:
Stay in your homes. Avoid public places.'
Emergency teams are en route.'

Hospitals are full. Incapacitated people are left on sidewalks.

Some are standing.
Some not.
As one, whole families are falling ill.
Those who can, race to the North over the Ohio River.
Those who cannot...
This is just too much...
Just play the damn curfew message.

This is addressed to those unaffected by the second wave of the Knox Infection.
You might know who you are by now.
If you don't, you will in coming days.
The disease will not spread to you as it has to others...
... but through fluid contact, by which I mean bites...
... it surely will.
The time has come to bear arms against this threat.
They may be your family, they may be your friends.
Do not hesitate to pull the trigger.
These are dark days, but as a nation we can and will prevail.
You have not been forgotten.
We will come for you.

Hartnell:

My name is Pastor James Hartnell.
I am in what was once a place for radio broadcast.
It is now a mausoleum.
A walking mausoleum.
I have been bitten. I am not long for this world.
I came here, to this room, to pray with you. For our souls.
Our Father, who art...

Background:

Hartnell:

Oh but here they come.
Do not worry. I am... ready for this.
God bless you.
Get back! GET BACK!

Who art in heaven...
Hallowed be..

thy name...

Trivia

  • NNR Radio seems to be the Project Zomboid equivalent to the United States' NPR News.
  • NNR is the news station that lasted the longest during the Knox event. It sends out its final transmission with the report that the Knox infection has spread globally on the morning of July 18th.
  • When Pastor James Hartnell is on the air is one of three times that media adds to the player's panic and fear. (+4 Panic, +5 Fear)
