SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- You never saw Truman Krumholz on camera or heard his voice, but KY3 would not be on the air without his electronic wisdom.  He came up with ways for KY3 to do live broadcasts from all around Springfield and from the dedication of Table Rock Dam in 1959, in the days when broadcast equipment was bulky, not easily portable, and satellite and microwave transmissions were not yet invented. On Oct. 1, 1953, at 4:47 p.m., KYTV went on the air.  At that moment, engineer Krumholz signed us on, or tried to, with the first piece of film: the national anthem.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- KY3 News at Noon started out more than 50 years ago as KYTV's "Mid-day" show and its cheerful host was Larry Dixon. Dixon died this week at his home in Springfield at age 81. Dixon and his wife stopped by the station just for a tour. Before they left, he was the newest staff announcer. In the 1950s, local television was more fun -- and challenging. It was a dance.  Dixon shared his midday newscast with a naughty monkey, a parrot with a powerful beak, along with two co-hosts.

POSSIBILITY OF A FEW STORMS IN SOUTHERN OZARKS Good evening. A surface cold front has moved into northern Arkansas so many locations around the Ozarks stayed dry today and saw some sunshine. Rain chances do remain in the forecast tonight and tomorrow closer to that front in extreme southern Missouri and northern Arkansas. Atmospheric moisture content has come down a bit with the passage of the front so any rain that does materialize may not be quite as heavy. However, with saturated grounds flooding could be a risk with any rain that does fall tonight or tomorrow.
