KWCH 12 is now testing the secondary audio program (SAP) on selected CBS programs. The secondary audio is a descriptive video service (DVS) in English which makes visual media more accessible to people who are blind or otherwise visually impared. CBS currently provides descriptive video on four programs: CSI, Criminal Minds, NCIS & NCIS Los Angeles. Some other CBS programs have Spanish language dialogue on the SAP channel including the program The Bold and The Beautiful. The FCC will soon require broadcast stations to pass SAP if a program provider includes that service with their program.

One of the people responsible for the success of this television station has passed away. Ross Beach was a long time leader in Kansas broadcasting as well as banking, oil, gas and aviation. Beach and his partner Bob Schmidt bought what was then KTVH in the early 1980's. Their leadership and investment helped turn a struggling local television station into a success story. That station is of course KWCH. Ross beach grew up in Hays and graduated from Kansas State University in 1940.

What is a tweet up? Well, according to Urban Dictionary, it's a group of friends on Twitter (social network) that are planning to meet up; a request by a user to meet with friends via Twitter. In my experience these 'friends' might be strangers if you passed them on the street. Let's be honest that teeny-tiny picture online isn't exactly the best way to see what a person really looks like. But at a tweet up you get to put a face to a tweet and magic happens! Maybe not. But at the very least you'll engage in some good conversation with new people and the ability to say you mixed it up before 9 in the morning.
