This story has been updated with additional information.

At least some services of Skyview Networks have been interrupted this week due to a cybersecurity incident. The company said it had experienced “unauthorized access to its IT environment, resulting in interrupted technical services” early Monday morning.

It said it activated its incident response plan and subsequently isolated the affected systems. But it said the incident has affected a number of programming and advertisement delivery programs and as of Wednesday midday it said it expects continued disruption to some systems through the end of the week.

Skyview Networks declined to provide details including which services had been affected. Barrett News Media reported that CBS News Radio including the “CBS World News Roundup”  was affected on Monday and that CBS Radio was using alternate distribution methods.

Skyview is based in Scottsdale, Ariz. According to its website it has approximately 10,000 radio affiliate relationships with a customer base that includes media companies, consumer brands, entertainers, sports organizations and state news networks.

“We have engaged reputable third-party forensics experts to help contain and investigate the incident,” it said in the statement.
