About The Channel
View the City of Fort Smith's government access channel for the latest information on city events, activities, and public meetings. The regular meetings of the Fort Smith Board of Directors are televised live and rebroadcast on this channel. Announcements for community organizations, churches, and schools are another feature of this channel and are provided free of charge as a public service. Video programming is also provided relative to City services and other promotionals. The channel is provided by Cox Communications, Inc. as part of its franchise agreement with the City. Deadline for submitting announcements is 2 weeks prior to event
Announcements and video programs appearing on the channel are grouped into “magazines” with one for all Fort Smith city government information/services, and one for community events. The two magazines air alternately through a 24 hour period.
Agendas for upcoming regular meetings (1st & 3rd Tuesday) and study sessions (2nd, 4th and sometimes 5th Tuesday) of the Board of Directors will be available for viewing every Friday beginning at 6:00 p.m. Agendas will be displayed Friday (beginning at 6:00 p.m.) through Tuesday at 6:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m., 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. The only overlap in the schedule will be the week of the "regular" meeting whereby the live brodacast will begin at 6:00 p.m. rather than the agenda.
