Little did the management and staffs of the Infinity Corporation – owner of Power Television and Radio, know that last Friday’s heavy down poured of rain and storm would have created an unfavorable situation for their professional work.
In addition to damage/destruction caused by the stormy weather on last Friday, leaving hundreds of people homeless, the transmitting tower of Power radio and television also crumbled down to the ground.
Speaking to this paper following the incident, which also affected some internal equipment, the News Editor of the station, Mr. Anthony Stephens, said the damage created some huge financial losses to the company.
He was quick to point out that the management could not uprightly put the loss at any dollars and cents on grounds that assessment was being done by technicians of the independent broadcast institution.
According to him, the storm’s casualty caused serious set-backs to the activities of Power Television, thereby damaging the entire antenna system of the station. Speaking to this paper Sunday Morning, May 15, 2016, Mr. Stephens – also host of the Power Morning Live on of Power T.V and Radio, said the station has been off the air since Saturday, May 14, 2016.
Mr. Stephens, described the situation as devastating, assuring the public that efforts were being made by technicians of the station for the resumption of broadcast activities. He also assured that they would resume a small skill broadcast within the soonest possible time.
Though he was not specific on the time, but indicated: “the devastating situation is being dealt with by our technicians, and we are also making all efforts to make sure that we resume a small skill broadcast – I can’t show a specific time because I am not the technician; they will have to tell us the time, but we can assure our audience that we will do all that we can to meet up with their satisfactions. Remember their listening pleasure is our wish and their command will surely be our wish in terms of broadcasting.”
He further stated that even though their audience might lose their listening appetite, he encouraged them to remain patience as efforts were underway to meet up with their listening taste within the soonest time.-Press statement
