A vital piece of equipment at the KTYK transmitter went out and we are now operating at half power on the main channel only. We are in the process of ordering a replacement and will make repairs as soon as possible. Our HD signals online are unaffected. We appreciate your patients.
The long-awaited work mandated by the FCC at our Shreveport transmitter site begins this week. The FCC has mandated that all TV transmitters make changes to their transmission tower called re-stacking. KDAQ's antenna is located on the LPB tower near Mooringsport, LA. This structural change to the tower requires KDAQ to operate at low power until the work is completed, we will be at low power for the next 2-3 weeks with occasional off-air periods. Listening online will not be affected by this work. We appreciate your support and patience.

Now, Della Mae finds the foursome embracing a fresh set of musical challenges with eleven compelling new tunes that embody the musical and emotional qualities of the group's prior output while venturing into uncharted creative territory.
