February 6, 2006 at 6:13 AM (PT)
The collapse of the tower for RAYCOM ABC affiliate KLTV (TV)/TYLER, TX on FRIDAY morning also took noncommercial Contemporary Christian KVNE/TYLER off the air.
KVNE, normally 100,000 watts, returned on SATURDAY morning with a temporary signal of 500 watts and says that restoration of normal coverage will take several months. Investigators continue to probe why the tower suddenly fell without warning or bad weather.
