As part of its "A Hometown Celebration" Skylink Discoveries project, the Channel 40/29 Newscenter Team broadcast its 6 p.m. news program from Siloam Springs City Park.
The program was broadcast live from the park via satellite. "This opportunity to take the newscast on the roads has only been a dream," Craig Cannon, Channel 40/29 news director, said. "With our new satellite truck, it's now a reality. We are excited about leaving the studio and getting to know many of our viewers personally."
The station's tour included nine other Arkansas and Oklahoma towns besides Siloam Springs. Channel 40/29 televised the NewsCenter At Six live from a different community each night.
NewsCenter anchors Craig Cannon, Carey Hoffman and Jerry Overton, weatherman Ken Rank and sports anchor Ron Rector were on hand at the park after the newscast to visit with Siloam's residents.

Oak Hill Cemetery was scheduled to receive fresh asphalt on the gravel roads in the city-owned cemetery.
Siloam Springs Board of Directors approved a $72,215 bid to pave the gravel roads in the cemetery at Holly and University streets.
The cemetery was also scheduled to receive a statue of an angel to be placed at its entrance with landscaping there.
New gravel was placed on the roads by city crews in preparation for paving.
The total cost of the project was not expected to exceed $90,000.
Oak Hill Cemetery Association donated $45,000 to the city for the project.
An additional $5,000 was available from the cemetery association for the statue and landscaping, City Clerk Peggy Woody said.
The cemetery was started in 1888 in the southeast corner. The oldest grave is dated 1878.Editorial on 07/04/2018
