Power Outage Knocks WTSP Off the Air

wtsplogo_304x200Tampa CBS affiliate WTSP went off the air for Comcast and Dish Network customers for two hours Wednesday night after a power failure at the station’s transmitter, The Tampa Tribune reports. General manager Elliott Wiser posted details to the station’s Facebook page:

The outage mainly affected two TV stations and several radio stations. Our generator suffered a pump failure two hours in. We got it fixed at around 9:30. We will be installing two pumps to make sure this doesn’t happen again and will review our inspection schedule to make it better.

I am sorry to those of you who could not watch Survivor. It is available right now on CBS.com, and we will also be re-airing the episode Saturday night, March 1 at 11:35 p.m. following 10 News at 11.
