Two days after a power outage struck the Sunlight Peak broadcast tower farm near Glenwood Springs, KREG, the CBS affiliate owned by Hoak Media is still off the air. Little KDNK community radio was also blacked out but was up and running soon after the power outage struck. KREG, however, owned by media veteran and multi millionaire Jim Hoak of Dallas, is still dark.
When avid and helpful CBS viewers called KREX offices in Grand Junction to alert the station management of the dark signal, they were told to "rescan your TV channels,"... a standard "it's not our problem... you must be doing something stupid" answer usually associated with cable company technical inquiries.
One regular KREG viewer said they would be contacting the FCC tomorrow if the signal, broadcast on public airwaves, was not in service as required by KREG and KREX broadcast licenses.
