On February 3,
2006 KLTV‘s main broadcast tower collapsed. What used to be
more than a 1,000ft broadcast tower quickly became a heap of mangled
twisted metal resting in a field in Red Springs. Within hours KLTV
Engineers and staff had rescued and reinstalled a 500lb. transmitter
and had a signal back up at the old studio on Erwin in Tyler.
Here we are one year later. Subscribers to cable or satellite TV
services have seen little difference, but our viewers that receive us
with an antenna at the far reaches of our signal may have experienced
some challenges in recieving our signal. We are so very proud
that you have stood beside us when our broadcast signal was less than
perfect. It has been a difficult journey but now we are ready
The new tower is standing tall and the transmitter will soon be ready
to be turned on!
