As RBR+TVBR first reported Thursday, Gray Television‘s NBC affiliate in Lake Charles, La., suffered significant damage to its broadcast studios after its broadcast tower snapped in half and fell onto the station’s operations center.
On Friday, new images posted by the station show just how lucky the news team was by not broadcasting from the station.
These images were coupled by new information regarding the damage sustained to the SagamoreHill-owned CBS affiliate, a low-power facility, in Lake Charles.
At KPLC-7, the Gray property, a large amount of debris was found inside the station’s studio, where staff members would have been working had they not evacuated prior to the storm making landfall. Staff evacuated KPLC some 12 hours before the tower fell.
