WJLA To Go Off-Air For 4 Days

The over-the-air broadcast signal of Channel 7 (WJLA) will be down from Tuesday, May 28 – Friday, May 31 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

The station will be doing tower maintenance that requires the station to go off-the-air.

The outage will not affect cable and streaming services.

DCRTV wonders why the station wouldn’t broadcast from a backup site, or do the tower work during the overnight hours??? Taking the station off the air doesn’t sound like a good idea.
