We’re back! WHNT News 19’s signal is restored to over-the-air viewers

Update, Saturday, August 26–  Our crew has spent long hours at the transmitter site and on the tower trying to get the repairs done quickly, yet correctly, and we are happy to announce that we are transmitting at FULL POWER! Over the next few days our engineers will watch the transmitter very closely for any issues.  Thank you for your patience and understanding during the outage. We sincerely appreciate your viewership.


To our over-the-air viewers,

More than a week ago, we had to shut down our transmitter due to some moisture damage. We made the decision to shut down the transmitter until we could fully assess the damage.

For a couple of weeks we were able to transmit at a very low power; enough to get us to our cable and satellite system providers (where they pick up our signal). We also had a temporary directional antenna in place.

We are appreciative of your loyalty, and we don’t take it lightly. Some of your favorite CBS shows are streamed the next day at and almost all of them are available with CBS All Access. WHNT News 19 newscasts are also now available live on CBS All Access. There is a free 30-day trial.

If you just want to watch your local news and weather, we live stream all of our newscasts on and on our mobile app which is available for free for iPhones and Androids.

Thank you for your support and patience, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

Stan Pylant
