Among the casualties of the tornadoes that touched down in NORTH CAROLINA over the weekend was the tower for CAPITOL BROADCASTING Spanish Sports WCLY-A (ESPN DEPORTES 1550) and CURTIS MEDIA Classic Country WQDR-A (COUNTRY LEGENDS 570 AM)/RALEIGH-DURHAM.
CBS affiliate WRAL-TV reports that a tornado knocked some trees into the guy wires supporting the tower, taking the tower down. WQDR says that its "engineers are assessing the damage and hope to be back on the air as quickly as possible."
