North Platte has a new television station! 10/11 North Platte officially hit the air Monday. "The launch of KNPL-TV means North Platte now has its own local CBS affiliate, with its own news team, sales/marketing team, and creative services department,” said 10/11 General Manager Susan Ramsett. “We're excited to be here and are looking forward to serving the viewers, businesses and organizations that call North Platte home."
10/11 North Platte can be viewed over-the-air on channel 10, and soon on channel 10 on Dish Network and cable providers. Viewers who do not yet receive 10/11 North Platte are encouraged to contact their provider.
The 10/11 North Platte office is located at 400 N. Dewey Street. "During the past few months, we've transformed this historic downtown space into a modern news and production studio with state-of-the-art broadcasting equipment,” said Ramsett. “This means 10/11 North Platte viewers can now see the area's first local newscasts in high-definition, the latest advances in weather graphics, and live capabilities throughout the area."
10/11 North Platte’s newscasts begin Tuesday, Sept. 3 at 6:30 p.m. & 10 p.m., and will be the area’s first high-definition local news. The newscasts are anchored by Adam Uhernik, Kristin Bauer, and meteorologist Rusty Dawkins. “We’re excited to give viewers in North Platte a high-definition choice for early evening news,” said 10/11 News Director Stephanie Hedrick. “Plus, 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.” 10/11 North Platte’s news department can be reached at KNPLnews@1011now.com.
