Starting early Saturday morning, WRUR will be operating at reduced power, which will reduce its coverage area until the main transmitter is restored to full power. This is expected to be done by late Sunday afternoon, with a full restoration of 100% power by Monday morning, Our online stream at wrur.org will not be impacted.
