The new broadcast antennas for WICU and WSEE arrived Tuesday.

A helicopter is being brought in this week to hoist the antennas, so they can be mounted on our broadcast tower located on Peach St. just south of Interstate 90 in Summit Township.

Once the antennas are mounted, our engineering team will be working to hook up the antennas to the WICU and WSEE transmitters.

Both stations are expected to start broadcasting with the new antennas by the end of May. At that time, viewers who use an antenna will notice a drastic improvement in reception.
