EARLY ON, KTEN MADE THE DECISION TO TRANSITION ON THE ORIGINAL DATE OF FEBRUARY 17TH.

TESTS" AND OPTED TO NOT SWITCH EARLY BUT REMAIN BROADCASTING OUR ANALOG SIGNAL. ON
FEBRUARY 10TH, A SERIES OF TORNADOES CAME THROUGH OKLAHOMA KNOCKING OUT POWER TO
10,000 CUSTOMERS FOR AS LONG AS THREE DAYS. KTEN COVERAGE OF THE STORMS WAS CREDITED
TO HAVE SAVED LIVES AS WELL AS PROVIDING IMPORTANT EMERGENCY INFORMATION TO THOSE
WHO HAD NOT MADE THE TRANSITION AS WELL AS THOSE THAT HAD.
TO AVOID CONFUSING OUR VIEWERS IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE NATIONWIDE TRANSITION DATE
CHANGE WAS ANNOUNCED, KTEN BRIEFLY SUSPENDED AIRING TRANSITION RELATED CRAWLS AND
PSA'S AT 6PM FEBRUARY 4TH. THE PSA'S RESUMED FEBRUARY 6TH IN THE 6AM TO 12PM QUARTER.
CRAWLS RESUMED FEBRUARY 6TH IN THE 12PM TO 6PM QUARTER.
