LPB reports issue, station not broadcasting

BATON ROUGE- Louisiana Public Broadcasting stations went dark Wednesday after an issue at the network's headquarters on Perkins Road.

WLPB, the broadcast station that programs much of the state LPB affiliates, reported on its Facebook page there was an issue with equipment and fire trucks were called.

No fire was found, though.

A producer told WBRZ News 2 equipment overheated and power was shut-off at the facility. Alarms also sounded.

A show about gun control that was interrupted will be rebroadcast later.

No word on when the station or affiliates will begin broadcasting programming again.
