It was this month, 60 years ago, when Shreveport's first television station signed on the air. That station was KSLA-TV.
From "Bob and his Buddies" to the Eyewitness News with Don Owen to the KSLA News 12 of today, more viewers in the ArkLaTex count on KSLA News 12 for their news, weather, sports, entertainment and advertising than any other television station.
We're also proud of our community involvement.
Supporting agencies to help the elderly keep cool in the summer with our annual Fan Drive, children to stay warm in the winter through our Coats for Kids program, and other support for the United Way, Salvation Army, the Shreveport Regional Arts Council, the Susan Komen Race for the Cure, Goodwill and the House for Hope. Countless other local organizations also benefit from our partnerships.
On behalf of all the employees past and present at KSLA News 12, thank you for watching.
We're ready for the next 60 years. I'm James Smith.
