Fargo, N.D., April 7, 2020 — Prairie Public television and radio over-the-air broadcasts in the Minot area will once again be interrupted by outages. The outages will be intermittent, dependent on weather and tower crew progress. Most outages will not impact evening prime time hours.
A nationwide spectrum repack requires Prairie Public to remove and rebuild its tower that serves the Minot area. Weather and tower crew availability has extended the timeline well beyond Prairie Public’s initial timeline estimates.
