Tropical Storm Irene Takes WNYC-AM Off Air

You’ve heard about the numerous power outages in the tri-state area from Hurricane/Tropical Storm Irene. The widespread flooding also took its toll on many homes and businesses.  

One of those businesses that felt the wrath of Irene was radio station WNYC. The AM station had been off the air since Sunday morning at 9:30. 

Late Tuesday afternoon WNYC-AM began the process of getting on the air, returning at low power.

A WNYC spokeswoman says the antenna system suffered extensive damage.

While repairs continue, WNYC says listeners can also find them on their FM counterpart at 93.9, and regular AM programming is being streamed online at www.wnyc.org.

Christian station WMCA, with its antenna in Kearny, New Jersey, not far from where WNYC’s antenna is located, also was knocked off the air.
