KAQY-TV, and ABC affiliate, was purchased by Hoak Media in early 2009. It, along with KNOE-TV, is operated as a "duopoly" out of the KNOE-TV facility in Monroe, LA.
KNOE Television officially went on the air September, 27th 1953 and was the first television station to begin broadcasting in Northeast Louisiana.
Begun by the late Governor James A. Noe, Sr. and owned and operated by the Noe family until October 2007, KNOE featured such shows as Electric Kitchen, Mildred Swift's Open House, Happiness Exchange, School Hilites and much more.
KNOE kept pace with the latest technology and state-of-the-art equipment and in 1964 erected a nearly 2000 foot tall tower in Riverton, Louisiana which enabled KNOE's signal to reach even more of the ArkLaMiss. With it's commitment to local programming and to be the best at news gathering and weather coverage, KNOE has newscasts scheduled at noon, 5, 6, 10pm and weekends that are viewed by over 225,000 on a daily basis.
In addition to the commitment to local news, KNOE is affiliated with the CBS network which offers some of the best programming on air. Shows such as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami and CSI:New York, Criminal Minds, NCIS, Survivor, The Amazing Race, Two and a Half Men, The Young and the Restless, The Price is Right, and more, are staples of the CBS network and are highly rated programs. Syndicated shows include Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, Dr. Phil, Judge Judy and Judge Joe.
Our sister station The CW offers programming aimed at a younger demographic and features such shows as Smallville, Gossip Girl, Reaper, America's Next Top Model, Aliens in America and others.
On October 4, 2007 KNOE ownership transferred to Hoak Media of Dallas, Texas.
