A week ago yesterday at about 7:30 p.m., a single-engine plane hit the guy-wire on the TV tower outside Raycom’s NBC affiliate in Lubbock, Texas, bringing down most of the tower and cutting all power to the station. Even though power wasn’t restored for a day, the station was producing news and back on the air within three hours with the help of the local Fox affiliate and others. Photo by Butch Adair.
A small plane hit the tower of Raycom’s KCBD Lubbock, Texas, Wednesday night, killing the pilot and knocking the NBC afffiliate off the air. The plane ended up in a field on the north side of the station building. KCBD said no one at the station was injured, “but we have been asked to leave the building. Fire officials believe our remaining tower may not be stable.” Raycom Technology VP David Burke says area broadcasters are doing “everything to assist” including setting up temporary studios and making provisions for alternate tower use.
