A power outage at the Media Park in Hilversum early on Tuesday morning resulted in program Goedenmorgen Nederland of WNL not being broadcast between 7:10 a.m. and 7:40 a.m. Grid manager Liander reports on Twitter that the problem was fixed and power is restored, ANP reports.

NOS switched to backup power so that the NOS News and NOS Radio 1 News could be broadcast.

The broadcaster initially feared that programming will have to be cancelled until 8:00 a.m., but Liander managed to get the power back on before those fears were realized.

The last time there was a disruption in NOS broadcasting was when forced his way into the Media Park by . He demanded screen time and all of the Netherlands watched as the police took him down live on air. He was sentenced to in December last year.
