10/11 is excited to announce the launch of KNPL-TV, a high-definition television station broadcasting in the North Platte market. On or about September 1, 2013, 10/11 will launch KNPL as 10/11 North Platte. 10/11 North Platte will be the first local CBS affiliate in the area. The station will also broadcast high-definition local newscasts in the North Platte market.
The acquisition comes on the heels of 10/11’s addition of 10/11 Central Nebraska (KSNB), a full-power HD station.
“10/11 has always been known for leading the way in statewide coverage. The addition of 10/11 North Platte is another step toward better serving the great local communities in Nebraska.” said 10/11 President Jason Effinger.
10/11 North Platte’s high-definition newscast will be the area’s first local news at 6:30pm. “We’re excited to give viewers in North Platte a high-definition choice for early evening news,” said 10/11 News Director Sue Ramsett. “Having a statewide network means we’ll be able to provide viewers in North Platte with local news and instant access to other news that matters to North Platte: daily Husker practice reports, updates from the Legislature, the State Fair, or Husker Harvest Days…the possibilities are endless.”
In addition to local news, weather, and sports, 10/11 North Platte programming will feature CBS programming, including NCIS, 60 Minutes, and NFL football, and locally-produced programming such as Pure Nebraska, and 10/11 PrepZone Weekly.
