March 23, 2011 at 8:05 AM (PT)
The tower of NBC affiliate WEAU-TV/EAU CLAIRE, WI has collapsed and took the antenna of MAVERICK MEDIA Country WAXX along with it. The tower in FAIRCHILD, WI came down TUESDAY night; the reason for the collapse remains unclear, although the TV station notes that the weather was windy and icy.
WAXX is being heard on the 92.9 FM Class A signal of sister Classic Rock WECL (92.9 THE BIG CHEESE) until it can make other arrangements. WECL's regular format continues as an Internet stream for now.
