Starting last week, viewers can tune their TVs to CBS Lake Charles, the new local CBS Network affiliate, on Channel 17. For many in the Lake area without cable service this is a major upgrade (don’t throw those antennas out yet!)
Louis Wall, a partner with Lake Charles Television, said the station’s office will be at 129 W. Prien Lake Road.
Wall said the idea to bring a CBS affiliate to Lake Charles had been in the works for eight or nine months. He said he was surprised the area did not already have one, considering its size and recent growth.
Lake Charles now has Fox, NBC, CW and CBS stations…could ABC be next?
