Power reduction on 91.3, outage on 96.7

Tuesday 1/13, 11:15 am: A power outage at our 91.3 transmitter site in Brunswick county has caused 91.3 to operate at reduced power. As a result, HD2 Classical HQR and 96.7 are also off the air. We don't know at this time when power will be restored. Our live streams for HQR News and Classical HQR should continue to be operational.

This outage is not related to a different problem which took 96.7 off the air for several hours yesterday. We apologize for the inconvenience.

96.7 is back. Classical HQR returned to the air Monday evening, thanks to the hard work of Engineer Jobie Sprinkle and Operations Manager George Scheibner. Well done!

Earlier:  ATTENTION: Currently Classical HQR 96.7 is silent.  The tower has possibly been hit by lightning. We expect to be back on the air this evening. In the meantime, you can still access 96.7 fm by listening online or on 91.3/HD2. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to rectify the situation as soon as possible.
