KSPR Streams Live!

I am so excited about this.

KSPR is the only station in the Ozarks that streams its newscasts live.

If we're on the air, we'll be streamling live on the web.

I think it's especially important during severe weather-- let's say you're at the library, and you have to take shelter in the back hallway... the staffers can turn on the laptop and watch it LIVE.

I was at Borders during bad weather... they didn't have a TV. They had to use the internet... they were tracking another station, and all they had up was a still shot of the radar. This is so much better!

When it's not streaming live, our channel will show the radar with the National Weather Service updates... you can also watch Storm Stories and other KSPR related material.

If we have bad weather, I'll try to put up the channel on the blog. I wanted to embed it here permanently, but I felt it weighted down the site. Maybe I'll try again another day.

Dear Michelle,

I have been trying all day today to log onto the KSPR's live-stream weather radar site, but all I keep getting is a commercial and then a snowy picture, please help me fix this problem if possibly. Thank you. Oh and your website is very kool.

Hey thanks! If you're seeing a commercial or a promo, then that means we're not streaming... See, we only stream live when the newscasts are on... You'll want to click on the livestream during our newscasts (5-7 a.m., 4:30 p.m., 6 p.m., and 10 p.m.) If we're not on the air with news, then our stream is not on. Hope that helps! Thanks for watching!
