DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — The broadcast tower for two Dickinson radio stations fell when saturated ground shifted and released an anchor cable.

Clear Channel Radio North Dakota Chief Engineer Ernie Swanson tells KCJB radio that the tower sat on a hill about four miles northeast of Dickinson and broadcast the signal for KCAD and KZRX.

Swanson says the tower on Wednesday night fell onto the side of the building that houses transmitters but the equipment wasn't damaged. No one was hurt.

He says a temporary portable tower is being brought in. Both stations will be off the air until it arrives.
