Breaking: WWTV Transmitter Building Catches Fire

Heritage Broadcasting’s WWTV (Cadillac) was off-air today due to a fire that broke out late Thursday night (August 30) at the station’s transmitter site in Tustin.  At press time, fire crews were still on scene and there was no known cause for the blaze.

The transmitter building was built in 1961 and once housed station’s studios for decades, following a previous fire that destroyed the station’s studio and transmitter facilities.

The station moved into current studios in Cadillac early in 2017.

The MAB has already heard from one area engineer who has offered assistance, adding “there are many of us engineers in the area that are able and willing to lend a hand.”
