Here's why WKYC will be off the air Friday afternoon

WKYC Channel 3 will be off the air Friday afternoon, as of 11:40 a.m.

The outage could remain in effect for a few hours.

It will impact anyone using an antenna or whose cable/satellite provider receives our signal over-the-air, meaning you will not be able to watch us during this period of time.

It comes as we work to complete installation of our brand new antenna, which is a project mandated by the FCC.

With storms set to roll into the area this afternoon, we have no choice but to complete work on our tower now to ensure safety.

We apologize for any inconvenience this will cause. We have hopes that this will be the last of interruptions as we update our antenna.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have rescanned for us previously and got our signal, you DO NOT need to scan your TV again. You will receive our signal once we power back up.

Thousands of stations across the country are affected by this transition, including many here in Ohio. We're very sorry for this disruption and are working as quickly and safely as possible as we can.

We will let everyone know as soon as we are at full power. And rest easy Browns fans, we will be back up before the first primetime game on Sept. 16.

Until then, we thank you for your patience and your loyal viewership.
