KOAA needs two channels to cover area

QUESTION: Why is television station KOAA channels 5 and 30? Why not one or the other?
- R.K.F.

ANSWER: Here’s an explanation from The Gazette’s TV writer, Andy Wineke: “KOAA started out as Channel 5 in Pueblo. Tuning in Channel 5 in Colorado Springs, however, was more miss than hit, and so KOAA built Channel 30 as a high-powered translator covering Colorado Springs. Today, KOAA has offices and a newsroom in Colorado Springs but keeps its news studios and broadcasting equipment in Pueblo."
