FORDLAND, Mo. (AP) - Officials say they have no estimate for how long it will take to restore Ozarks Public Television service to all viewers after a TV tower collapse in southwest Missouri that left one person dead.

Missouri State University spokeswoman Suzanne Shaw said Monday she did not know when viewers who use antennas to get channels would be able to watch KOZK Ozarks Public Television. The university is looking at teaming up with another broadcaster to put its equipment on their tower, but no plans have been finalized.

The Springfield News-Leader reports sine viewers with AT&T; U-verse, Mediacom and DirecTV should now be able to watch Ozarks Public Television.

The 1,980-foot (600-meter) tower that collapsed Thursday was used by the university to broadcast Ozarks Public Television. One man, 56-year-old Steve Lemay, died.
