Presumably if the tower collapsed while they were on air, viewers wouldn't have seen it live, due to the tower collapsing which surely would have taken them off air.

Indeed. It's not the main tx however. It was used to send the signal to the main transmitter.

Presumably to get a temporary service back on-air for antenna viewers, they'll need to have a new set-up where they can line feed the signal from Baton Rouge either to a temporary transmitter where they can send it to the main tx or direct to the tx, along with playout facilities also in Baton Rouge or another Grey station, so they can provide normal programming and the NBC network feed.

I seem to recall that to get other stations on-air other hurricanes that playout would be provided by another station owned by the same group, while local news was provided either by another station or by a sat truck locally. I remember a station in Florida that wiped out the station for a long period that relied on a similar set-up.

I imagine they’ll be investing in a fiber line next time. They still haven’t made it to the transmitter.

The station in Florida that was wiped out last year if I remember still isn’t back. It took over a year for KHOU to be in a new building after being flooded during Harvey.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

WMBB in Panama City went off air in October 2018 and appears to be back to normal as possible.

From what I recall at the time, WFLA in Tampa provided them with a temporary studio in the initial stages and then playout was moved to another Nexstar station a fair distance away once the transmitter was back on-air.

The first bulletins back at WMBB were in the parking lot with a sat truck sending it back to the playout centre at the other Nexstar station helping out.

Guess they couldn't lose the (secret) battle against the media in the South to win over the audiences in their homeland? I'm aware that the shows from South Korea are secretly circulated in the North.

In the Philippines, the last day of the pioneer anchor of ABS-CBN's nightly newscast, TV Patrol, Ted Failon. He decided to leave the network after 30 years, and the franchise denial of ABS-CBN is the main reason of his departure.
