KTBS Celebrates 50 Years of Broadcasting
KTBS, Channel 3 is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year. KTBS signed on the air on September 3, 1955. KTBS is locally owned and operated by the Wray family of Shreveport, and is one of the few locally owned and operated stations in the country.
According to Wikipedia, as of 2005 KTBS has the largest news staff in the Ark-La-Tex area, with newsrooms in three states: Shreveport, Louisiana; Texarkana, Arkansas and Marshall, Texas.
In March, Channel 3 Louisiana Association of Broadcasters selected KTBS 3 as its Station of the Year for 2004.
To help celebrate the station is giving away a trip to Hawaii. I am sure many other plans are in the works as well.
