Lightning Strike Knocks WDVX Off the Air

If you've had trouble getting reception for WDVX the last few days, you're not alone—the station's been knocked off the airwaves and reduced to its online broadcast since a lightning strike last weekend hit its transmitter in Campbell County. The station administration had already been trying to raise money for a new transmitter, and now they're asking for emergency help to buy a new transmitter and get it installed so the station can return to the air.

"Right now we are still broadcasting online and hosting our live events," Jennie Caissie, WDVX's director of development, writes in an e-mail. "I want your readers to know that WDVX will be back on the air soon and that they can still listen online or come on down to our events (Blue Plate/First Friday/Wild Wing Cafe) for some cool live music!"
