NET Radio Working to Restore Broadcast Near Alliance

LINCOLN, Neb. (Jan. 16, 2014) -- Public radio in parts of western Nebraska remains out of service this week due to transmission line damage at NET Radio’s KTNE-FM transmitter site near Alliance. Among the communities not able to receive the local 91.1 FM signal are Alliance, Scottsbluff, Bridgeport, Gering, Hemingford and Oshkosh.

“A tower crew is on site working to restore service, but this week’s windy conditions have slowed progress,” said NET Radio Manager Nancy Finken. “If the weather cooperates, repairs may be completed tomorrow.”

NET Radio listeners have other options to listen live via the NET website at net.Nebraska.org/radio or via their mobile device after downloading the free NET Radio Nebraska app. The NET Radio Nebraska app is available in the iTunes and Android markets and offers two streams, News/Classical (main FM station) and News/Jazz (HD2).
