History

Channel 8 was originally licensed to Albion, Nebraska, and began broadcasting December 3, 1964 as KHQL-TV, a satellite of KHOL-TV (channel 13, now KHGI-TV) in Kearney and the Nebraska Television Network (NTN, later known as NTV) owned by Bi-States Company.[3] The station served as the ABC affiliate for much of the Nebraska side of the Sioux City, Iowa market. NTV Enterprises acquired the NTV stations in 1974;[4] on June 4, the station's call letters were changed to KCNA-TV (for the largest towns in its service area, Columbus, Norfolk, and Albion).[5]

Joseph Amaturo bought the NTV stations in 1979 in a deal funded by the sale of KQTV in St. Joseph, Missouri.[6] Amaturo split KCNA from NTV on November 1, 1983 and relaunched it as Nebraska's first independent station, KBGT-TV[7] (Big 8—named for the Big Eight Conference, of which the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Iowa State Cyclones were members). KBGT's programming during this time included movies, syndicated programming, newscasts (both locally produced and from CNN Headline News), and sports; it also operated 24/7, a rarity for small-market stations at that time.[7] However, Sioux City was too small at the time for an independent station to be viable. It did not help matters that KSHB-TV in Kansas City was available in most of the market on cable.

By 1986, massive financial losses compelled Amaturo to sell the station.[8] Citadel Communications then acquired KBGT[9] and turned it into a satellite of co-owned Sioux City ABC affiliate KCAU-TV;[8] in January 1987, the call letters were changed to KCAN.[10]

In the spring of 1996, Citadel moved the license to Lincoln, and on April 1, relaunched the station as KLKN. Before then, Lincoln was one of the largest cities in the country with only one commercial television station; KOLN had been the sole station in the state capital for virtually all of the television era.[11] Omaha's KETV had served as Lincoln's default ABC affiliate, and is still available on cable on most Lincoln-area cable systems, including remaining the default ABC affiliate on some smaller systems.

As the move of channel 8 to Lincoln left Albion without a television station, Citadel established KLKE (channel 24) on March 30, 1996 as a satellite of KLKN.[12] KLKE was shut down on March 2, 2003 and its license returned to the Federal Communications Commission after determining that the cost of converting the station to digital broadcasting was prohibitive.[13] KLKE's vacant transmitter is located near Elgin at 41°56′25.9″N 98°16′57.4″W / 41.940528°N 98.282611°W. This has resulted in parts of northeast Nebraska, including O'Neill, Neligh, and Albion having no local over-the-air ABC signal; however, KLKN and KHGI remain available on cable and satellite in these areas, and KHGI currently operates a repeater in O'Neill.

KLKN's digital signal signed on August 31, 2002, operating on UHF channel 31 until the end of the station's analog broadcasts on February 17, 2009. It was the first digital television station in Nebraska.[14]

The Lincoln market is one of three in the country (Grand Rapids, Michigan and Tampa Bay, Florida being the others) where there are two separately-owned ABC affiliates in the market, as the western portion of the market (Grand Island, Hastings and Kearney) continues to be served by NTV. Both KLKN and NTV are available on Dish Network and DirecTV in the market.

Until 2011, KLKN did not carry ABC's World News Now. Instead, the station joined its fellow Citadel stations in signing off every night, making it one of the few remaining stations in the country to do so. However, many Lincoln area viewers could still receive World News Now via either KETV over-the-air or on cable, or NTV via satellite.

After the sale of WOI-DT, WHBF-TV and KCAU-TV to the Nexstar Broadcasting Group was completed on March 13, 2014, KLKN and ABC affiliate WLNE-TV in Providence, Rhode Island would become the only stations with a major network affiliation still owned by Citadel; the company also owns a news-intensive independent station, WSNN-LD/Suncoast News Network in Sarasota, Florida.

On May 16, 2019, it was announced that Standard Media would acquire KLKN and WLNE for $83 million. Its leader, former Young Broadcasting and Media General executive Deb McDermott, had begun her career in the Lincoln market at CBS affiliate KOLN.[1]

Digital television

Digital channels

The station's digital signal is multiplexed:

Channel Video Aspect PSIP Short Name Programming[15]
8.1 720p 16:9 KLKN-TV Main KLKN programming / ABC
8.2 480i KLKNGRI Grit
8.3 KLKNESC Escape
8.4 KLKNLAF Laff

On December 1, 2008, KLKN launched an affiliation with Retro Television Network on its DT2 subchannel and Time Warner Cable channel 82 and Charter digital 398, alongside former sister stations WOI-DT in Des Moines and WHBF-TV in the Quad Cities. On January 16, 2012, KLKN, along with all Citadel stations (including WLNE-TV in Providence and KCAU-TV in Sioux City), began carrying Disney/ABC's Live Well Network, replacing the Retro Television Network on its subchannel and cable channels.[16] In June 2014, it was announced that the Live Well Network would shut down in January 2015. On August 18, 2014, KLKN replaced the network with two networks geared towards two genders. Male-oriented Grit took over Live Well's space on 8.2 and female-oriented Escape was added to 8.3.[17]

Analog-to-digital conversion

KLKN shut down its analog signal, over VHF channel 8, on February 17, 2009, the original target date in which full-power television stations in the United States were to transition from analog to digital broadcasts under federal mandate (which was later pushed back to June 12, 2009). The station's digital signal relocated from its pre-transition UHF channel 31 to VHF channel 8.[18] KLKN was one of about 30% of TV stations in the United States to broadcast its digital signal on high VHF channel assignment.

News operation

In December 2006, KLKN began using new graphics and Frank Gari's "Eyewitness News (ABC O&O News Collection)" music package, similar to its former sister stations KCAU-TV, WOI-TV and WHBF, but did not drop the Eyewitness News title. KLKN started airing its newscasts in high-definition on October 26, 2010.

Citadel Communications

Citadel Communications Ltd. is an American private broadcasting company. It is based in Bronxville, New York, and operates 2 full-power television stations, 1 low-power station and a regional 24-hour cable news channel. The company was founded in 1982 by former National Association of Broadcasters joint board chairman and current Broadcasters Foundation of America chairman Phil Lombardo.Upon completion of the Digital TV transition in 2009, Citadel's stations at that time returned their digital broadcasts to their former analog channel assignments in the VHF spectrum. As a result of poor propagation characteristics for digital TV in the VHF bands, these stations now operate low-power digital fill-in translators in the UHF band to improve coverage in their communities of license. See the digital TV section on the WHBF-TV entry for further information on the Citadel stations' post-transition digital signals.

In February 2009, Phil Lombardo became an investing partner in LDB Media, LLC., owners of the Suncoast News Network, a regional cable news channel in Sarasota, Florida. In January 2014, Lombardo and Citadel purchased a majority interest in the company. As a result, Citadel took over broadcast operations of SNN and integrated the channel with its other stations.

On September 16, 2013, Citadel announced that it would sell WOI-DT, KCAU-TV, and WHBF-TV to the Nexstar Broadcasting Group for $88 million. Nexstar immediately took over the stations' operations through a time brokerage agreement. The deal followed Phil Lombardo's decision to "slow down," as well as a desire by Lynch Entertainment to divest its investments in WOI and WHBF. Citadel would continue to own KLKN, WLNE-TV, and its Sarasota properties. On March 5, 2014, the Federal Communications Commission approved the sale of these stations to Nexstar outright and the deal was completed on March 13.

On May 16, 2019, it was announced that Standard Media, led by former Young Broadcasting and Media General executive Deb McDermott, would acquire Citadel's WLNE and KLKN for $83 million.

KHGI-TV, virtual and VHF digital channel 13, is an ABC-affiliated television station licensed to Kearney, Nebraska, United States, serving most of central and western Nebraska and the northern third of Kansas. The station is owned by the Sinclair Broadcast Group as part of a duopoly with Lincoln-licensed Fox affiliate KFXL-TV (channel 51). The two stations share studios on Nebraska Highway 44 in Axtell, about 14 miles (23 km) south of Kearney; KHGI also operates a secondary studio at the Conestoga Mall in Grand Island. The station's transmitter is located near Lowell, Nebraska.

KSNB-TV

KSNB-TV, virtual and VHF digital channel 4, is a dual NBC/MyNetworkTV-affiliated television station licensed to Superior, Nebraska, United States, serving southeastern and central Nebraska.

KSNB-TV's transmitter is located near York, Nebraska. Its news operations are primarily based at a studio located north of Hastings on U.S. 281 that housed the area's former NBC affiliate, KHAS-TV (channel 5, now dual MyNetworkTV/MeTV affiliate and former KSNB-TV satellite station, KNHL); with a secondary news bureau and sales office on West State Street in Grand Island. Master control and most internal operations are based at KOLN's facilities on North 40th Street in Lincoln. Since KSNB's signal does not reach Lincoln, it is simulcast in high definition on KOLN and KGIN's second digital subchannels.

KSNB is officially part of the Lincoln–Hastings–Kearney market, which spans 42 counties in Nebraska—almost two-thirds of the state's land—and four counties in Kansas. Until recently, the market had no basis in television reality and was only fully realized on the local DirecTV and Dish Network feeds. However, with the conversion of KSNB to NBC, the market does now share all major network affiliates except for ABC, as the western, central and northern parts of the market receive ABC from KHGI-TV (channel 13) while Lincoln and the southeastern portion of the market receives ABC from KLKN (channel 8).

The station brands itself as WOTV 4 based on its channel 4 position on most area cable systems, though it is on channel 41 on Dish, along with AT&T's DirecTV and U-verse.

The Grand Rapids–Kalamazoo–Battle Creek market is one of four instances where there are two affiliates of the same network. ABC programming is also seen on WZZM (channel 13, owned by Tegna Inc.), which is based out of Grand Rapids. Although WZZM clears all network programming and operates a full news department, its digital signal cannot reach the southern portions of the market (Battle Creek and Kalamazoo). This is because its transmitter is located northwest of Grand Rapids in Grant, farther north than the area's other network stations. While WOTV once focused primarily on the southern portion of the market in an area between WZZM and South Bend, Indiana's WBND-LD, in recent years it has billed itself as a full-market ABC affiliate, including Grand Rapids. ABC is the only remaining network with such dual-affiliate arrangements, which exist in Grand Rapids–Kalamazoo–Battle Creek, Boston–Manchester (WCVB-TV and WMUR-TV), Tampa–St. Petersburg–Sarasota (WFTS-TV and WWSB), and Lincoln–Hastings–Kearney (KLKN and KHGI-TV).
