KVUE Austin loses power during winter storm

KVUE Austin

KVUE Austin was off the air from 6:20am to 9:55am, according to the station, on February 1, 2023 due to power issues thanks to the winter storm hitting Texas.

However social media reports from staff suggest KVUE started to come back on air for some around 8am. 

The Austin American-Statesman reports more than 100,000 customers were without power earlier this morning due to the ice and falling tree limbs.

When asked on social media if they station had backup power, a staffer responded it does, but no explanation was given as to why it wasn't keeping the signal going.

There are tweets from Austin TV viewers not being able to receive KVUE over the air (OTA), so the station says rescan your televisions.

While the station was off, I checked and found the stations live video consisting of a radar feed from Houston TEGNA sister-station

KVUE  has been broadcasting its Daybreak morning show with extended hours recently from 4am until noon.
