Oct 6, 2014

KUAR and KLRE were off the air for several hours Monday morning due to after an outage caused by an overnight storm. The stations were without power since 3:16 this morning until shortly before 7 a.m.

General Manager Ben Fry said the University of Arkansas Little Rock Facilities Management worked to get the stations' power back on the air. 

“There have been several power outages on campus. One of them [affected] the power that comes into the control rooms for KUAR and KLRE. It’s [turned] off the power for our vital systems,” he said.

Due to power outages, the University of Arkansas campus at Little Rock will be closed until 9 a.m. Monday, with classes before 9 a.m. are canceled.

UPDATE: Full power has been restored.  Also working again is the webstream for both stations.
