LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Back in December we told you about improvements we were making to our backup power at the station which allows us to stay on the air even during an electrical outage. That’s very important for a station that covers events like hurricanes.
Well the new equipment has been installed, and now we need to connect into our systems. To do that we have to shut-off electrical power to the building.
Saturday, after Saturday Night Live ends at midnight, KPLC and all of our digital stations will go off the air. We hope to be back in operations by 4 a.m. but it could take a little longer than that.
Because we provide KVHP with services like master control operations, this will affect their stations as well. This is necessary to ensure that we can provide important information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, even if we have a power failure, but we do apologize for the inconvenience.
And once again, thank you for being a KPLC viewer.
