Shreveport Stations Cover Texarkana Train Derailment
The Shreveport stations are experiencing a busy weekend already as they cover a train derailment and explosion at the Union Pacific railyard in Texarkana. From what I have read on the WWW, the incident occured around 5am Saturday morning. I am sure the incident was covered before I finally awoke at 10am. Anyway, at 10am KTBS, Channel3 was the only station providing LIVE coverage of the incident while all the others were just running a crawl informing of the latest. KTBS broke away from LIVE coverage at around 10:20am.
UPDATE: CNN has picked up the story and is using video from KLSA on the air.
