WVIA PR – WVIA’s Transmitter Repaired

Last Updated by WVIA Admin on

PITTSTON, Pa. – WVIA’s television transmitter is back in service, operating at 100 percent, station officials announced today. WVIA’s transmitter went down June 3rd, causing a TV programming blackout for the station’s over-the-air viewers. Service to cable and satellite TV subscribers experienced only minor interruptions.

 

Key replacement parts had to be shipped cross-country from Sacramento, California to get the station back on the air.

 

“We are happy to report that everything is back to normal,” said Joe Glynn, WVIA’s vice president of engineering. “We appreciate the patience of our viewers as we worked diligently to get service restored.”
