Was listening to atlanta tower on 12-11-19 they hand a plane blow a tire and declared an emergency closed runway for 20 minutes then another for return landing. Nothing on news or internet.

Not every airliner issue may be considered an Emergency, it all depends on the circumstance.

Take a look at AVHerald, they usually pick up all the "little" incidents that do not necessarily make the news.
