WCBI-TV has returned service to nearly all of its satellite and cable customers after a technical glitch interrupted its signal last week, but over-the-air customers have to wait a while longer.
Bobby Berry, general manager for WCBI, said a problem with the transmission line at its broadcasting tower, located in Montpelier in northwest Clay County, caused many customers to lose the channel. Now, he said, all satellite and cable customers have had their signal restored.
Over-the-air customers, however, may not have WCBI restored until the week of June 21.
"Hopefully, during the week of the 21st, we will have the parts to get back on the air for the over-the-air viewer," said Berry.
