Power Outage Notification [Update: 2023-02-03 11:20AM CST]

February 2, 2023 in News by RBN Staff

Dear Fellow Patriot and RBN Listener:

Fri, Feb 3 Update: Power is out again this morning in the Austin / Round Rock area. See Outage Tracking below for details.

Thu, Feb 2 Update: Power has been restored, and we have begun the process of resuming live broadcasts – hooray!

Live broadcasts are suspended until further notice. After several days of severe ice accumulation in central Texas, we finally lost electricity at the network office and studios.

We are working to restore power and resume schedule broadcasts, but we are currently uncertain as to any approximate time when power will be restored so scheduled broadcasts can resume.

Stay tuned for updates. We will continue to update this post as more information becomes available.

In the meantime, please enjoy our broadcast archives, news articles, video archives, and other content.
