SHREVEPORT, LA (News Release) - The Red River Radio Public Radio Network, broadcasting as KLDN 88.9 FM in Lufkin and the surrounding Central East Texas area, is experiencing a temporary lapse in broadcast due to extensive electrical damage at the transmitter site.

KLDN will be off the air through Tuesday, September 6, and will broadcast on low power afterward until repairs can be completed. Red River Radio General Manager Kermit Poling says he expects to receive the necessary parts within a week.

This was a major blow to our KLDN transmitter, and repairs will be quite expensive for the station, said Poling. We ask for our listeners to be patient with us while we work as quickly as possible to get back up to full power. 

Listeners can tune in online for better access to programming during repairs. Red River Radio streams all three stations–the main channel, all classical music, and all news/talk–on the Red River Radio website at www.redriverradio.org.

Updates will be posted on the Red River Radio website, Facebook and Twitter as repairs are being made. 

Red River Radio broadcasts NPR news, classical music, jazz, blues, and other specialty programming on KLDN 88.9. The Red River Radio Network provides news, information and entertainment to a large geographical area, broadcasting as KDAQ 89.9 FM in Shreveport, KLSA 90.7 FM in Alexandria, KLDN 88.9 FM in Lufkin, KBSA 90.9 FM in El Dorado, and on the Lincoln Parish translator at Grambling State University at 90.7 FM.  

The network is licensed to the LSU Board of Supervisors and headquartered on the campus of LSUS. Visit www.redriverradio.org for more information on The Red River Radio Network.
