News/talk AM 920 The Answer is off today in Atlanta. The transmitter has broken, a source told me. The website is down as well.
Mike Moran, vice president of operations, said power went down. Georgia Power is working on it. He hopes to have the station back on air by noon.UPDATE: The station returned at 11:42 a.m.
The station airs conservative talk show hosts such as William Bennett, Hugh Hewitt, Michael Medved, Dennis Prager and Mike Gallagher.
Given the interest in politics today, the day after Election Day, the timing is not exactly auspicious.
The station rebranded last year as The Answer. It’s a syndicated brand heard in about 20 markets.
In recent Nielsen Audio ratings, the station generates a 0.2 or 0.3 rating.
