WKYC (Channel 3) says it will be off the air for several hours Wednesday as the Cleveland television station works on its antenna tower.

"Starting at 8am, crews today will be adding and/or removing wiring on our tower," WKYC said in a story posted on its website. "This work will position them near our auxiliary antennas, which emit dangerous levels of radio frequency signals. To protect the workers during this phase of construction, we have to power down our signal."

The station said it plans to have the signal restored by the 6 p.m. news.

"This project has been mandated by the FCC," WKYC said. "Thousands of stations across the country are affected by this transition, including many here in Ohio. We're very sorry for this disruption and are working as quickly and safely as possible as we can."
