As you’ve no doubt noticed, over the past few weeks, we’ve had signal trouble and even drop outs from time to time.  

 

If you remember about a month ago, there was a bad ice storm that knocked power out, took down trees and caused issues for many in the area. Well, that same storm damaged our tower and antenna for both B94 and News Talk 1400 & 94.5 WKBI.

 

Beginning today, and over the next several days, a tower crew is working to restore the damaged tower and antenna.

 

Both stations will be off air for periods of time during the day. We apologize for the inconvenience.

 

We will let you know when the work is done.

Thanks!
