Repairs to GPB radio tower in Pembroke under way

POSTED: December 5, 2011 2:00 p.m.

Repairs to Savannah’s Georgia Public Broadcasting radio tower located in Pembroke are under way as the company works to restore full power after a lightning strike damaged the tower in November.
While the company makes repairs, GPB has moved the programming to an alternative tower.
The temporary signal does not provide 100 percent coverage to the greater Savannah area, so some listeners may experience outages or lower signal strength.
“We understand how vital WSVH is to the Savannah community,” Jon Hoban, vice president of GPB Radio said. “Our engineers are working around the clock to solve the problem and we’d like to thank all our listeners for their continued patience.”
Listeners and viewers to WSVH as well as viewers to the GPB television station, Savannah’s WVAN/9 may experience intermittent outages as repairs are made. WSVH listeners can access GPB Radio via live stream at
GBP is a Public Broadcasting Service station that serves as a great source for music, National Public Radio news and Georgia’s source for top-quality multimedia educational products and services.
