COMMUNITY FIRST BROADCASTERS Southern Gospel-Talk WAMV-A/AMHERST, VA, was knocked off the air by ice accumulating on its 100-foot tower.
Owner/GM BOB LANGSTAFF told the AMHERST NEW ERA PROGRESS, "We did a slow fade as things froze up, and we’re waiting for a thaw. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to returning to the air." LANGSTAFF said that the station hopes to return to the air TODAY (1/29).
