New Facebook Page Launched to Counteract Closing of ABC's Situation Room

Local media personality Mike Gay announced the creation of a new Facebook aimed at counteracting the deletion of a popular local Facebook group.

Following the announcement that the Facebook group, ABC 7's The Situation Room, would be closed, many began clamoring for a new source. A new page, the Yellow City Situation Room, has been launched in an effort to fill the gap that the closing of the ABC 7 group left.

The new page was launched last night and already has about 178 "likes."
