KSHB/KMCI Tower Finished
May 30, 2003
Scrippts Howard Broadcasting stations KSHB (NBC Action News 41) and sister station KMCI (Channel 38) has completed their 1164 foot tower on the south side of Kansas City. (close to 84th street). KMCI should be broadcasting full power (5 million watts) in middle June making KMCI the strongest TV station in the Kansas City area. KSHB and the digital transmitters for both stations should be ready by the end of July. Since KSHB signed on as a NBC station they have only been at 1/3 their power. This will make a major differnce for both KSHB and KMCI. Right now KSHB shares tower space with WDAF Fox 4 and KMCI's tower is located and licensed out of Lawrence Kansas.
