HEIDELBERG BROADCASTING Urban Oldies WVOL-A/NASHVILLE, which was the victim of an attempted arson in OCTOBER, was temporarily knocked off the air this week due to vandalism, reports NBC affiliate WSMV-TV.
Wires at all six towers were cut, and GM JOHN HEIDELBERG said that about $1 million in damage was done.
HEIDELBERG said he believes the vandalism was a reaction to T.J. GRAHAM's controversial talk show on the station. "I think this kind of dialogue is needed in this community," HEIDELBERG told the TV station. "You can't let this kind of thing distract you, because if people can intimidate you with fear and those kind of tactics, it'll only get worse."
