WALB is back on air

WALB is back on air

(WALB) - WALB is now back on air on both networks and on all providers.

We would like to apologize to our viewers for being off air most of Saturday.

It was never our intention.

We had to perform a major switch-over to a new electrical panel and it was not periodic maintenance.

It was something we had to do to continue to bring our viewers great service.

Our crews came in at 3 a.m. on Saturday to work on this so they would have very little impact on your viewing.

However, during the process an error was made, and our power was shut off when it wasn't supposed to be.

This was completely out of our control.

Because of this action, major pieces of our equipment needed to bring you your programming was fried.

We wanted to do this changeover earlier this week, but because of Hurricane Hermine, we wanted to wait for safety reasons and that's why it had to happen on Saturday.

Our WALB crew worked diligently to get the issue fixed as quickly as possible.

We apologize again for what happened and we thank you for your patience.
