Authorities Search For Radio Station Burglars

Keavy, Ky (WVLT) -- Eastern Kentucky authorities are still searching for the persons responsible for a burglary at a gospel radio and television station.

Owners of the station said it will take about $60,000 to replace the equipment and repair the damage at WVTC and WVTN.

Loyal viewers and listeners maintain the work of criminals won't keep them from the gospel they love.

"The devil fights God's people," said Cornelius McFarland, who listens to WVTC daily, "but we're overcomers, moral conquerors."

The station was able to air this week's Sunday gospel program.

Station owner Charles Sivley is reaching out for donations.
