Radio station struck again


The folk saying may be “lightning never strikes the same place twice,” but Horne Radio LLC general manager Tony Cox might disagree.

For the second time in two weeks, WFIV 105.3 FM, “The Voice of Farragut,” has been struck by lightning.

“The replacement parts that were put back in place were then damaged again, so it’s more of the same thing,” Cox said.

Although all the stations are up and running, Cox said station employees still are facing technical issues and glitches, in factors as various as web streaming to phone connections.

“W-F-I-V is up and operating, but there are some technical issues popping up and we are dealing with those,” Cox said.

“We’re saying we can dwell on this in the past or we can move forward, so our option is to move forward and deal with the little technical difficulties as they occur,” he added.


An electrical engineer will be inspecting the station’s ground system to make recommendations and hopefully prevent a third strike.

“I’m excited about that, because that will certainly, certainly make us better,” Cox said.

However, Cox said the lightning strikes could be a blessing in disguise.

“This is an opportunity; this is not an obstacle,” he said.
