Several local television stations will change frequencies at 2 a.m. Monday, including KY3 and Ozarks Public Television.

Kirk Lemons, chief engineer at KY3, said anyone without satellite or cable will need to rescan their televisions or converter boxes for channels if they want to keep watching the channels that are changing frequencies.

“And that’s a process that, you know, requires that you go into your menu, and all televisions are slightly different, but mostly you go into a set up menu and then you’ll have an option to automatically scan channels,” said Lemons.
