COLUMBIA, Mo. - UPDATE: The Networks of Mid-Missouri temporary broadcast tower is now broadcasting near its full strength, meaning the signal should be available for most viewers over the air and on satellite and cable services.
ABC 17 newscasts are also available online through the News Now livestream.
The project to replace the permanent broadcast tower remains on schedule for completion by Nov. 1.
