The WQAD signal is temporarily offline while a damaged antenna is replaced. Viewers can watch News 8 live here on our website or through the Roku app.

The signal cut off about about 7:30 a.m. and is expected to return at about noon once repairs and testing are complete.

Early last week, News 8 discovered the damage to our antenna bay.

The above photo shows the first part of the damaged antenna being removed and brought to the ground just before 8:30 a.m. 

Thanks for being a WQAD viewer and we look forward to complete repairs that restores your ability to watch.
