Contemporary Christian radio station Big Fish 95.5 is not broadcasting at the moment after a lighting strike knocked out its equipment in Newlands on Tuesday.
Pamela Norton told the Compass that the strike was powerful and had overpowered grounding capabilities for the station, which had been on air since April.
“Our technicians are working on getting us back on the air – we most likely will be running strictly the satellite programming without any local content for a few days – but at least we are back on the air,” she said.
Ms. Norton said it was possible that equipment could be repaired quickly and asked listeners to bear with the station, which she said will be “back on track as soon as possible”.
“To all the listeners, thank you for tuning in and for all the positive feed back we have received. We are working diligently to get us back on track with local content and great music – in the mean time please stay locked in to 95.5 and feel free to send us your comments,” said Ms. Norton.
Listeners may contact Ms Norton at 940-1082 with queries.
