Dale Kovar joined the 10/11 NOW news team in August 2017 as a producer.
Dale Kovar, from Seward, Nebraska, brings 25 years of broadcasting and production experience to the team, with a radio career as both DJ and Production Director in several radio markets.
Starting in Lincoln at 95.1 KLDZ ("All Oldies, All The Time!"), then to Dallas, Texas on 103.7 KVIL (Adult Pop-Rock), followed by two long stints in Kansas - Lazer 105.9 in Lawrence, and V100 (Rock) in Topeka.
Dale returned to Lincoln after traveling "town to town, up and down the dial" (as the song says), and landed back with his first company, which was Three Eagles at the time, as a producer and DJ on 104.1 The Blaze (rock).
He has also continued his mobile DJ business throughout his career and hosts karaoke shows around town. He spends a lot of time enjoying live music and movies, singing in bands, and is a self-professed geek for Star Wars and Superhero movies ("it's an amazing time to be a comic book nerd with a new superhero movie coming out every other month or so!"). He attends nearby comic book conventions (Comicons), even donning a costume or two.
After all the years in radio production and programming, Dale is happy applying those hard-earned skills to a new broadcasting platform at KOLN/KGIN, and is thrilled to be able to do so in the same market where his long career began, Lincoln, Nebraska!
Fun fact: Dale is also a certified firefighter!
