Storms have caused damage to the transmitters of MINNESOTA PUBLIC RADIO noncommercial Classical KCCM/MOORHEAD-FARGO and Classical KCCU/APPLETON, with KCCM knocked off the air due to a lightning strike.
Another lightning strike damaged KCCM's transmitter, but the station remained on the air at lower power.
The company says that its engineers are working quickly to resolve the issue.
