Another potential outlet for classic TV in the area?

There might just be another opportunity to see classic television shows aired in northeast Arkansas and part of southeast Missouri. After years of having just one public television station, the Jonesboro market recently saw the debut of KJNB, a Fox affiliate that airs on Channel 39 over the air and is making its way onto local cable providers and will soon be on DirecTV, Talk Business reported over the weekend. The move now means that three of the four major networks -- ABC, NBC and FOX -- now are available in the Jonesboro market. Now that KJNB is on the air -- and plans to also expand its over-the-air availability -- could it be an option to add one of the classic TV networks (Me-TV, Antenna TV, Cozi TV, Decades and/or Heroes & Icons) as a secondary affiliate on 39.1 or as a subchannel (say a 39.2)? Only time will tell. Hopefully, we will hear some (good) news soon!

Is it possible that one or both of these shows could end up being shown in the Jonesboro market soon? Stay tuned! (TV show photos are public domain)
