MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Montgomery's Fox Television affiliate WCOV FOX 20 says it's broadcasting at reduced power due to a weekend storm that damaged its broadcast transmitter.

The transmitter, located on WSFA 12 News' tower in Grady in extreme southern Montgomery County, was damaged when severe weather moved into the area Saturday. The station was thrown off the air for a short time and has been broadcasting at reduced power since its return to the airwaves.

While this should not affect cable and satellite viewers and most over the air viewers, some may experience problems with their signal. The problems may range from pixilation to interrupted signal in some areas.

"We would like to apologize for any inconvenience this event may have caused our viewers and ask for their patience as we are working diligently to replace the damaged equipment and return to broadcasting at full power," said station owner David Woods. 

Viewers who get FOX 20 through cable and satellite provider should be unaffected, but some over the air viewers may experience some signal interruption.
