Lite Rock KEXL

NORFOLK - Work is continuing on the KEXL transmitter improvement project.  General Manager Jeffrey Steffen says he is hopeful the stations improvement project can be finished up sometime during the day on Wednesday. 

"Tower crews are in such demand, it is very difficult to get one on a short notice" Steffen commented today.  He says the station is grateful a crew should be on site by mid morning Wednesday to make the modifications necessary that will greatly improve the station's rural reach. 

"Growing pains" is what Steffen called them, saying he is confident the listeners will be very pleased with the new signal pattern. 

In order for us to protect our equipment and for crews to work safely the  the signal is limited for the time being.

Streaming is still available online at KEXL.com.
