KLTV Tower Update

Things are almost back to normal here at KLTV. It's  been four days since our main broadcast tower collapsed.

Our new analog and digital transmitters are now up and running at our old studios on the East Loop in Tyler.

Both transmitters are operating at 100 percent power. The most signifcant change is that our transmission antennas are not as high up in the air now, as they were on the tower that collapsed.

Also, the tower we're using now at our old studios in Tyler is about 14 miles south of the tower that collapsed. That means some viewers on the fringe of our coverage area may have trouble seeing us. If you are having problems, please give us a call or email us at comments@kltv.com.

Plans are already being made to replace the tower that fell. That will take between three and six months.
