Local TV news station KNWA will soon be moving into The Dickson, Arkansas Business reports.

The station has signed a 10-year agreement, and will occupy the entire third floor of the building at 609 W. Dickson Street. Randy Werner, leasing agent for The Dickson, said the new space is approximately 12,000 square feet.

KNWA’s main studio is currently located in the Campbell Bell building on the downtown Fayetteville square. The station also leases office space in the E.J. Ball building just off the square.

The move to the new space will take place in October. The station’s newscast will reportedly begin broadcasting in HD at that time.

Fox affiliate KFTA, KNWA’s sister station that shares their downtown studio, will make the move to The Dickson this fall as well. The vacancy of the two stations will leave about 10,000 square feet of empty space on the Fayetteville square.
