We just received a note from our engineers this morning. They will head out to our transmitter spots to asses the damages after Tuesday nights wind storms. We know that we are experiencing some over the air issues in the Spokane/Pullman market and that will be their first priority. Another group of engineers will be heading to Kamiak Butte, we have reports that we are on generator power there, so they will continue to asses that situation. 

We will continue to update the situation here on our website, once again thanks for your understanding and we hope you and your family are safe. If you have any concerns or questions about our signal please feel free to call us at 1-800-922-4220 or email us.
