Loss of TV van estimated at $250,000

‘A WDJT-TV (Channel 58) engineer told Muskego police Monday that the loss of the live transmitting van that broke through an iced-over channel on Big Muskego Lake would be up to $250,000.

Crews chipped away ice Monday from the submerged news van, which broke into the channel while the station was preparing a segment on snowmobiles and ice safety. [..]

“This story hits close to home for our cbs 58 family. While doing a story on thin ice yesterday one of our colleagues mistook a frozen channel for a road at Big Muskego Lake. One of our mobile live units wound up submerged in about 5 feet of water. Fortunately, nobody was hurt.”‘
