KNPB in northern Nevada loses signal in fire
Weekend snow and ice storms contributed to the cause of a fire that knocked out several channels from KNPB in northern Nevada. Viewers still can't access 5.1 HD, the standard digital channel, Create on 5.2 or V-me on 5.3. The blaze, which destroyed a filter system in the transmitter, was discovered at 9 p.m. local time Sunday, during the premiere of Stewards of the Rangeland, a new KNPB production focusing on livestock management strategies. "KNPB engineering staff are working with the transmitter manufacturer to replace damaged parts, returning the signal as soon as possible," a Monday (Feb. 28) release from the station said.
