SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

KSLA News 12 is celebrated 60 years of Coverage You Can Count On with an open house on Saturday, April 12.

KSLA became the first television station in Shreveport to sign on the air in January, 1954, and went on to mark many more firsts in the ArkLaTex. Some of those firsts include becoming the first station to broadcast in color and the first to broadcast in HD (high definition).

Today, we serve a huge geographical area that stretches south to Natchitoches, Louisiana, north to DeQueen, Arkansas, east to Ruston, Louisiana and west to Longview, Texas.

More than 750 people came to visit and take a tour of the station during KSLA News 12's 60th Anniversary Open House, getting a behind-the-scenes look at what we do here every day, from the studio to our new state-of-the-art satellite truck to production, news and sales.

Almost all walked away with a free KSLA News 12 60th Anniversary T-shirt, too!

Visitors also had a chance to register to win prizes, including a stunning sapphire and diamond bracelet from Pelz Jewelers in Marshall and a weather radio.
