BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – First News wants to give you the facts about a discussion we saw on social media concerning our main tower.

Someone in the Boardman Talk Facebook group asked why the white strobe lights are out on the tower.

Work is underway to upgrade them to modern LED strobe lights.

The Federal Aviation Administration has been notified, as required by regulations.

The FAA has placed a no-fly zone around the tower and notified aircraft pilots operating in the area.

The new lights are expected to go online in several weeks.
