Public license information

KRMS-LD (channel 32) is a low-power television station licensed to Lake Ozark, Missouri, United States, serving the Lake of the Ozarks region (located in both the Springfield and ColumbiaJefferson City markets) as an affiliate of Cozi TV. It is owned by Viper Communications alongside radio stations KRMS (1150 AM) and KRMS-FM (93.5). The stations share studios on Old US 54 in Osage Beach; KRMS-LD's transmitter is located on Osage Ridge Road, also in Osage Beach.[2]


On August 26, 2021, Viper Communications (managed by principal owners Ken Kuenzie and Dennis Klautzer) announced in a press release that they had acquired a construction permit from the FCC to operate a television station in the Lake of the Ozarks area on channel 32. The company already owned KRMS-AM and KRMS-FM in the Lake of the Ozarks area; and KHKU in Hanapepe, Hawaii. They shared their excitement to bring the area their first-ever television station and hoped to have it on the air by the end of 2021.

The programming on the station would be run by KRMS radio and offer local news and content, as well as four channels of networks not currently in the area with more to be added at a later date. Viper Communications announced they would start hiring more staff to assist in producing local content. The television station would eventually start using ATSC 3.0 technology to transmit a 4K picture. The owners stated, "Since we began, we have always believed in growth and the people of this area. That's why we invested in bringing the latest technology here."[3][4]


Programming includes local news and events produced by KRMS as well as syndicated programming such as Little House on the Prairie, Xploration Awesome Planet, and Bonanza.[5]

KRMS also produces short newscasts that air on multiple subchannels. Titled Lake News Now, these newscasts are anchored by local broadcaster Matt Markivee and show news highlights from the Lake of the Ozarks area.[6]

Technical information

The station has a 35-mile (56 km) broadcast radius according to a Facebook post released by KRMS Radio. The station uses the same transmitter as KRMS-AM and FM.[7]

"The Lake of the Ozarks have never had a true, local Television station" says Viper Communications President and Co-Owner Ken Kuenzie, "we're going to be able to provide 4 different channels, all on channel 32. One will have news content, one will have entertainment content, and we have some plans for the other channels...all focused on local community involvement." Kuenzie tells KRMS News the channel will be free and easy to tune in to "all you have to do is put one of those little $10 TV antennas, which you can pretty much buy anywhere, and connect it to your TV and boom you'll have free HD TV." Kuenzie says he wants the TV station on the air by the end of the year. He also says Viper Communications will be looking for local talent, and you can apply at the Osage Beach offices during business hours. KRMS TV will be joining a family of Lake Area radio stations, including 98.7 The Cove, Classic Country 104.9, 93.5 Rocks and News / Talk KRMS, AM 1150 - FM 97.5 & 103.3.
