UPDATE: Tower repair work are complete and WTVR CBS 6 returned its signal to full strength about 4 a.m. Thursday. We appreciated your patience.

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – WTVR CBS 6 is currently transmitting a low-power signal which could impact television reception for viewers who watch CBS 6 over the air on 6.1, 6.2 and 6.3. Viewers who watch on CBS 6 on cable, FiOS and satellite are not impacted.

WTVR CBS 6 switched to a low-power signal so crews could repair the damaged antenna of another local television station.

The crew informed CBS 6 that the work would likely be completed this week, however a definitive end date was not provided.

Most of the major work was completed Monday. Finishing touches and testing is scheduled to happen Tuesday or Wednesday (weather permitting).

Newscasts remain available streaming online on
