August 20, 2009 at 3:20 PM (PT)
CLEAR CHANNEL Country WSIX/NASHVILLE took a hit during severe weather earlier today, (8/20), when lightning struck their tower and knocked out power at the studios. The station was off the air for less than an hour, but the remaining stations in the CC/NASHVILLE cluster, Top 40 WRVW, News/Talk WLAC-A, Urban WRBT and Classic Rock WNRQ, were not affected.
WSIX PD KEITH KAUFMAN tells ALL ACCESS that although their signal is back to normal, several studios sustained major damage, including the WSIX main studio and morning personality GERRY HOUSE's studio. Afternoon duo BIG D & BUBBA's studio is in good shape.
