Fair makes partner at Ward, Smith, Hill

Andrea L. Fair, an attorney with Ward, Smith & Hill PLLC in Longview, has been promoted to partner.

Fair handles intellectual property and business litigation. She serves on the firm’s trial team, participating in several phases, including picking the jury, directing and cross-examining fact and expert witnesses, and closing arguments. Fair routinely appears and argues at pretrial hearings while helping teams prepare their cases and witnesses for trial.

Fair joined the firm in 2016 after five years of handling complex commercial litigation in Houston, where she focused on patent infringement cases, construction disputes, insurance coverage and defense work.

She was recognized in 2017 and 2018 on the Texas Super Lawyers Rising Stars list for her work in intellectual property and business litigation.

“I’ve enjoyed working with and learning from the talented team of litigators at Ward, Smith & Hill, and I’m excited about this new position and the responsibility that comes with it,” Fair said in a statement. “This is a firm that thrives on teamwork, always for the benefits of our clients.”

KDOK adds signal for Lake Cherokee

Chuck Conrad’s Chalk Hill Communications said the Federal Communications Commission has approved a new FM translator for Kilgore radio station KDOK. At 94.9 FM, the translator brings the station to the Chalk Hill–Lake Cherokee area.

Featuring hits of the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s, KDOK is an AM station licensed to Kilgore, and is found at 1240 AM.

The new signal is made possible by an FCC decision in the past few years to allow AM stations to be broadcast on FM translators. Conrad said translators are fairly low powered and usually cover a radius of about 10-15 miles.

KDOK now has four translators. They are 101.9 FM in Longview, 105.3 FM in Kilgore, 107.9 FM in Henderson and now 94.9 FM in Chalk Hill–Lake Cherokee. The signals of these translators overlap, so when you’re driving around, you need to occasionally change channels as you drive from one area to another.

KC Technical Job Fair set Tuesday

Kilgore College Industrial Technologies division on Tuesday will be host to the annual KC Technical Job Fair.

The fair will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Devall Student Center Ballroom on the Kilgore campus.
