CBS/Pittsburgh Stations Knocked Out By Power Outage
April 16, 2012 at 2:44 PM (PT)
A power outage in a nearby suburb of GREENTREE, PA interrupted broadcasts for a number of CBS stations in PITTSBURGH this morning, including Sports KDKA (93.7 THE FAN), Hot AC WBZZ (STAR 108), and Country WDSY (Y108). MICHAEL YOUNG, VP/Market Manager for the PITTSBURGH cluster, said an electrical panel blew out the stations’ facility in GREEN TREE. This panel included circuitry that prompts an automatic switch to generator power.
Until the power link could be accessed manually the three FM stations were off-air for two hours, starting at 7:40a. CBS News/Talk KKDA-A was not affected.
