El Paso, TX (KTSM) — Many of our viewers may remember a little run-in with a ring-tail cat back in November . Unfortunately, the damage that was caused during the incident with the critter and an El Paso Electric transformer outside of the KTSM/KDBC studios has caused an on-going oil leak from the transformer.
In order to repair the damage, EPE will be replacing the entire transformer early Sunday morning. The repair will take approximately 3-5 hours, beginning at 12:00 a.m. Sunday morning, at the conclusion of Saturday Night Live.
Viewers can expect for NewsChannel 9 to be off-air for several hours overnight while crews work to replace the transformer. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes our loyal viewers.
