CITADEL Urban AC KNEK-A/LAFAYETTE, LA is off the air temporarily following a transmitter failure. KNEK-AM simulcasts with FM sister station Urban AC KNEK (MAGIC104) in LAFAYETTE. The station ent off the air MARCH 24 and CITADEL notified the FCC last week that it needs Special Temporary Authority to keep the station silent while repairs are made.
CITADEL recently had to reduce power at Oldies WARM-A/SCRANTON-WILKES BARRE, PA. in order to conduct transmitter repairs. Industry insiders claim that these actions are still another sign of a sagging economy.
