Power Outage Cuts Service Statewide

August 20 2007 by Peter Morrill

On Sunday August 19, 2007, just before 6:00 p.m., a brief but powerful wind and rain storm raced through portions of the Treasure Valley, cutting power to about 1,800 Idaho Power customers, including Idaho Public Television's statewide network operations center.

As a result, IdahoPTV was unable to provide programming statewide from 5:58 p.m. Sunday evening to approximately 1:30 a.m. Monday morning, when statewide service was resumed.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank our technical staff - including Ken Constant (Master Control operator), Mike Studor, Kevin Evans, and Kevin Rank - who worked throughout the night until 6:00 a.m. to restore all of our systems.

For those who missed it, Mystery "Miss Marple, Ordeal By Innocence" will air early Thursday morning, August 23, at 1:00/12:00 a.m. MT/PT. Remember to set your VCR or DVR Wednesday evening before you go to bed!
