LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- Did you know more people get their news from local broadcasters than those big national cable outlets? In fact, the average newscast at a Raycom Media station delivers nearly 8 times the audience of a national cable newscast.

At KSWO 7News, that's what our LOCAL commitment is all about -- Severe weather warnings, important news and information where you live, your favorite DirecTV shows and sports. We're proud to be your neighbor and serve the Lawton -Fort Sill Wichita Falls Community.

Unfortunately, there's a danger DirecTV is about to drop us – and break that critical link to our viewers. We are currently working hard to make sure DirecTV customers continue to have access to KSWO 7News without interruption. But there is a chance they will not agree to a fair deal, and decide to drop this station from their system.

We're committed to keeping you informed every step of the way.  And remember, you always have choices. We are free over the air at KSWO.com. Our free news and weather apps, and also available through other local providers.

To find out more information and how you may be able to help, please go to ourlocalcommitment.com/KSWO/.
