Storm Topples Minnesota Station’s Tower

KSMQ, the PBS affiliate for Austin, MN avoided a broadcasters nightmare after they were taken off the air when their transmission tower was brought down during a fast moving storm Tuesday.  Station management was preparing viewers for the reality of the station remaining dark for anywhere from a couple of days to two weeks.

I was curious about the festival but couldn’t cover it because I was a political reporter.
