A local radio station that has been off in the area since the tower was knocked over in the fall is almost back up and running. In October, the WFXY radio tower was knocked down by a driver who hit the tower with his truck, which took the radio station off the air. The station has been keeping the community updated on the progress since the fall reporting in January that with the government re-opening, they would be able to take steps toward getting the tower rebuilt. Construction is currently underway, and WFXY Director Frank Smith is excited with the progress. “Should be about two and a half weeks until everything is back to normal,” Smith said. “We will have better coverage in the tri-state area.”
