Tuesday's Ten O'clock News

We wanted to take a moment to explain to our loyal Ten O'clock News viewers what happened during last night's show.  At about 10:15 PM Tuesday, FOX19 experienced a power failure at our studios in Queensgate.    We are waiting on Duke Energy to give us a more complete explanation,  but the interruption was so brief that the power came back before our emergency generator system came to full power.  Unfortunately, the U-P-S system that powers all of our computers and electronics failed to keep those systems fully powered.  As a result, every computer-controlled system in our building shut down and then automatically restarted.   Some of those systems came back more quickly than others which is why were able to continue most of the newscast.  We are still finding damaged equipment this morning, but most of our systems are now fully functional.

Those who were watching WXIX-TV over the air from our analog transmitter saw and heard only a momentary interruption in The Ten O'clock News.  Those watching WXIX-TV from our digital transmitter-which includes customers of Time Warner, Insight, Dish Network and DirecTv-either saw a trouble slide or had to endure an annoying audio tone for the duration of the show-that problem was corrected near the end of the show.

We apologize to our loyal viewers for the inconvenience and we assure you that tonight's viewing experience will be much better.

Regards,

Bill Lanesey, Vice President & General Manager
