A fire at a WINNIPEG radio and TV tower owned by ROGERS BROADCASTING knocked four radio stations and one TV station off the air SUNDAY. ROGERS Classic Rock CITI, Top 40 CKMM (HOT 103), AC CKY (102.3 CLEAR FM), and CIIT (TV) (OMNI 11) and CORUS Jazz CJZZ (COOL FM 99.1) were taken down by the fire, which caused about C$500,000 worth of damage.
Repairs are projected to be finished by TUESDAY or WEDNESDAY; in the meantime, the ROGERS radio stations are on the air with reduced power through temporary facilities.
