AM800 CKLW is currently broadcasting on its sister station AM580 after a transmitter fire.

No word on what caused the fire or how much damage was done.

You can also listen to AM800's news and talk-programming online or via the iHeartradio app.

jon - midwest DXers have reported that 800 CKLW came back on air Thursday but I can't verify this nor the report that the power may be reduced to 10 kW due to the fire. 580 CKWW is apparently back to oldies & no longer simulcasting
