Wednesday morning between 9:06am and 11:55am, the WPDE engineering team will work with companies including Duke Power to complete a very important part of our rebuild and upgrade to our transmitter facility.
During this three hour window, WPDE, WWMB, and WPDE First Warning Weather Channel may be off the air for a few minutes or for the entire time.
Crews will install a new high voltage power distribution panel in the building.
We apologize for any interruptions, but this brief outage will allow the team to complete the rewiring of the facility without interruption during daytime or primetime viewing. We are excited to get this first step in our total rebuild of the broadcast facility for WPDE, WWMB and WPDE First Warning Weather Channel behind us.
