SPOKANE – KSKN-TV, which filed for bankruptcy protection in March, has disappeared from the airwaves, and officials say it could be some time before it returns.

The station went off the air Saturday, the victim of financial woes.

Channel 22 officials said it will be “at least 90 days, maybe more” before the station, one of two UHF stations in Spokane, will be back.

The 3 ½-year-old operation is owned by a group of investors in Tucson, Ariz. It once featured Jim and Tammy Bakker’s “PTL Club” and “I Dream of Jeannie.” Also airing were all-star wrestling matches and an occasional Spokane Indians Northwest League baseball game.

KSKN offered classic musicals on Sunday evenings and 10 hours a day of nonstop advertising as part of a home shopping network.

The station filed for protection under Chapter 11 of the federal bankruptcy code for the second time in two years.
