Station KXLY-TV is Back on the Air

Spokane Daily Chronicle

Station KXLY-TV was back on the air with full telecast service today after lightning knocked out power lines on Mount Spokane last night.

W. Norman Hawkins, station manager, said the storm cut off all electric power at the transmitting station from 6 p.m. until nearly 10 p.m. Repairs were made by crews of the Inland Empire Rural Electrification Administration.

Hawkins said hundreds of telephone calls were received at the station after KXLY-TV blanked out on receiving sets.
