Gray Television launches local CW affiliates in Nebraska

Gray Television is pleased to announce the launch of local affiliates of The CW Network in two of its Nebraska television markets.

The CW, formerly only found locally on cable or satellite networks, is now available over the air for area viewers. The CW Nebraska can be found on KCWH channel 18.1 in Lincoln and KNHL 5.3 in the Grand Island, Hastings and Kearney area. Charter/Spectrum customers will find it on channels 15 and 1212 in Lincoln and on channels 16 and 704 in the tri-cities. The CW Nebraska is also live on KIIT 11.2 in the North Platte market. Viewers are encouraged to check their local listings.

The CW’s popular primetime programming includes The Flash, Supergirl, Riverdale and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Its new six-night, Sunday-Friday fall schedule begins Oct. 7 with a two-night exclusive telecast of the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Festival. “We know there is an audience out there waiting for these shows and advertisers are interested too,” said Shannon Booth, Vice President and General Manager for The CW Nebraska.

“We are excited to yet again expand our partnership with Gray Television by adding new CW affiliates in Nebraska,” said Chris Brooks, Executive Vice President, Network Distribution, The CW. “We’re looking forward to working together with The CW Nebraska for many years to come.”
