Crews are painting WTOK tower per FCC
MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - WTOK-TV is painting our tower at the transmitter site.
Painting crews arrived Friday and starting painting in the morning. The painting crew will be on-location over the next four days.
We are reducing power to allow the painting crews to safely climb the tower. Temporarily reducing power will protect the crews on the tower.
The reduction in power will happen during daylight hours only, from 7:30am until 5:30pm.
The new orange and white paint are colors required by the FCC. The paint also protects the tower structure from rust.
