WVPB Radio Charleston Out Until Further Notice:

WVPB 88.5 Charleston will be off the air until a new transmitter can be ordered and installed. The transmitter was damaged by a lightning strike on Friday, July 8. Our engineering department had a temporary fix, but that also stopped working this past weekend when lightning struck the site again. The copper used for grounding to protect the site from lightning had been stolen. The new transmitter is being ordered and will be installed as soon as it arrives. We do not have an estimated time of delivery at this time. In the meantime, listeners can stream WVPB radio on our website at wvpublic.org. Also, listeners can try to pick up WVWV 89.9 Huntington, which does reach into Charleston.
