Ice, Snow Fells WIHG Tower

Tennessee station, sister HD2 channel referring listeners to streams, apps

The mangled remains of the WIHG antenna can be seen amidst the snow, ice and sticks.

This story was amended to correct the tower height.

Crossville, Tenn., FM WIHG is referring listeners to its streams today after ice and snow felled part of its tower and sheared off the antennas yesterday.

Classic Hits “The Hog” on 105.7 MHz is licensed to Rockwood, Tenn. Its 100–foot tower atop Renegade Mountain snapped from the weight of snow and ice, and chunks of ice came through the roof of the transmitter building, and onto the transmission equipment, according to the station’s Facebook page.

WIHG and sister CHR station “The Vibe” on its HD2 channel and an FM translator are referring listeners to their streams and smartphone apps.

The stations are owned by Southern Media Group.
