WBOI transformer damaged in outage

Late Wednesday afternoon, there were a number of power outages across Allen County, and a transformer on the power line that supplies electricity to WBOI-FM blew out, according to an email sent Thursday by the station.

It said the transmitter for the public radio station, 89.1 FM, was damaged.

"Due to these damages we are currently broadcasting at limited power," the station said. It apologized to those experience "signal issues."

President and General Manager Peter Dominowski said in the statement that the station did not know how long it would take to resolve the situation.

The statement said listeners can go online at WBOI.org or WBNI.org or they may select the NIPR app through the App Store on iTunes or Google Play.

The classical music station, WBNI-FM, might experience some outages during repairs, the station said.
