KTSS-TV out of Hope, Arkansas has decided to close their doors with hopes of a new owner soon taking the reins. Greg and Robin Bobo have owned and operated the television station since 2000.
The couple posted this on their facebook page:
It is with sad hearts that we have to announce the closing of our television station, KTSS TV. We suffered a catastrophic lightning strike earlier in the year from which we have been trying to recover. But now that, along with other community business decisions, has forced us to close our doors.
KTSS TV has been a big part of the Hope community since 2000, and we are so grateful to businesses like McDonald’s, Pafford EMS, Hope Tractor, Medi Mart, Amigo Juan’s, Hope Auto, along with our Church Programming, and others for supporting us all these years. Negotiations are underway for the sale of the station, but it doesn’t look like it will remain in Hope, and for this we apologize. Being the only privately owned tv station in the state made us special and now this great asset to Southwest Arkansas will be gone. We loved covering all the local events, festivals, parades, the area schools’ football games, graduations, and programs, and featuring our State Constitutional Officers, local civic groups, and other events for the viewers to see. It’s been a great 17 years, but the time has come to move on to other projects. Thanks for watching, we wish you all well.
KTSS-TV has been available to viewers on cable systems in Hope, Prescott, Emmet, Spring Hill, Blevins, McCaskill, Saratoga, Fulton, Nashville, Mineral Springs, Murfreesboro, Delight, Antoine, Texarkana, Nash, Wake Village, Stamps, Lewisville, Buckner, and Ashdown.
Greg and Robin Bobo have both been a blessing to many wonderful causes and people over the years to area communities and we wish them luck and good fortune with their future endeavours.
