A required inspection of the WDCL-FM transmitter tower in Somerset will result in a signal outage Wednesday. We anticipate the outage will begin late Wednesday morning. Crews will work to keep the interruption as brief as possible.
This does not affect our live webstream. Thanks for your patience while this work is completed.
WDCL-FM in Somerset is off the air due to a downed power pole caused by a car accident, which has interrupted power to the transmitter site. At this point we're not sure how long the signal will be out.
