Closed Captioning on KPLC - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Closed Captioning on KPLC

New FCC rules now require broadcast stations to make sure that complaints about closed captioning can be easily made, and addressed in a timely manner.

Many folks in the hearing impaired community use keyboard-based devices to communicate effectively. KPLC has purchased a TTY phone and has secured a dedicated phone line so that we can receive viewer complaint calls.

Station point of contact information for immediate concerns and written complaints are available below, and with the FCC. The FCC will publish the contact information on its website, and make it available by telephone inquiry.  The TTY/TDD direct phone number will also be posted in telephone directories.

On receipt of a complaint, KPLC will have thirty days to respond to the viewer, and we also must provide a copy of its response to the FCC.

To contact us about our closed captioning service or advise us about captioning problems, please contact the KPLC TV engineering team. We accept calls using TDD, and we are available during normal business hours to address captioning issues.

    Young boy hosts a lemonade stand for charity

    A facebook post seen by thousands in the lake area inspired a seven year old boy to make a difference. Channing's Lemonade is an idea hatched between Channing and his mother, with a goal of raising money for less fortunate children and families. Channing is frustrated though because he sees a lot of selfishness in the world. "Other people in the world don't want to help anybody but themselves. I care about them... I want them to have good times in their homes......
