HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A transmitter issue has been fixed, restoring reception to Hawaii News Now viewers on Oahu, Maui and Hawaii Island.
HNN’s Engineering team said the issue was caused by a power outage. Initially the generator had kicked in at the Oahu site, but KGMB failed to come back on.
The transmitter issue affected antenna viewers for KGMB (Oahu), K28NN (Maui), K20NX (Hilo), as well as KHII (Oahu).
A crew was able to get the transmitter working again at around 7:40 a.m.
