JONESBORO, AR - For anyone who has visited the KAIT studios in recent weeks..."pardon our progress," as the old cliche goes.

Concrete crews, steel workers, and general helpers with Daniels Construction of Blytheville have been regulars on the KAIT grounds since early September.  They are currently in their third month of building a 5,500-square foot addition that will house a brand new K8 newsroom and studios.

The new amenities will also include new editing suites and a parking garage for our fleet of news cars and live trucks.  The project also includes an expanded employee parking lot.

The estimated completion date for the $400,000 project is late January.
