Last night's episode of Eli Stone

April 18, 2008 7:55:05 AM PDT
ABC7's transmitter lost power Thursday night and viewers of Eli Stone missed most of the season finale.

A message from ABC 7 Chicago President & General Manager Emily Barr:

Our Sears transmitter took a power hit at approximately 8:30pm last night and we lost power for about 45 minutes or so.

We continued to feed all local cable systems but our over-the-air analog and HD transmissions were interrupted.

The problem was exacerbated by a second, unrelated problem - an electrician working at the Hancock Tower earlier yesterday accidentally cut a fiber line that would normally feed to our back-up transmitter so we were also unable to switch to our back-up transmitter as that line was in the process of being repaired.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you and we thank you for your understanding.

Emily Barr

President & General Manager
