KTAL Texarkana Newsroom Evacuated...

This from the tip box:

KTAL TV Texarkana newsroom evacuated today after suspicious substance/device found inside.

I wasn't even aware had a live living newsroom in Texarkana anymore.  I know they have their call letters and logo on the outside of a building on Summerhill Road.  I thought when they pulled out of Central Mall that was it for a studio/newsroom in Texarkana.

Suspicious device? It must have been their camera.

Having worked in the Texarkana bureau previously, their FCC license for the entire station is based in (Texarkana) Texas, so legally they can't pull out unless the spend the money to get a new license that's based in Shreveport (or at least that's what I was always told).

I work at KTAL and I didn't even know we still had a "newsroom" in Texarkana.

It's been a few years since I worked at KTAL, but they did have a shoebox with a camera and a mic, that we could connect to via microwave link. KTAL wants to be licensed as a Texarkana station,not a Shreveport one. Forget the reason.
