Ice storm topples radio tower in Worthington

WORTHINGTON, Minn. — A couple of radio stations are off the air in Worthington after an ice storm toppled part of a radio tower.

The Radio Works group lost one of its three towers due to the storm. General manager Chad Cummings says the top three-fourths of the tower fell to the ground Wednesday morning but there were no injuries and no damage to buildings.

Cummings says the group was able to get KWOA-AM and KITN-FM back on the air, but it might take another day or two for KUSQ-FM and KZTP-FM.

He says getting power to the remaining transmitters has been the main challenge.
