KREM, virtual channel 2 (UHF digital channel 20), is a CBS-affiliated television station licensed to Spokane, Washington, United States and also serving Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. The station is owned by Tegna Inc., as part of a duopoly with CW affiliate KSKN (channel 22). The two stations share studios on South Regal Street in Spokane; KREM's transmitter is on Krell Hill southeast of Spokane.
On cable and satellite, the station can be seen in high definition on Comcast Xfinity channel 102 in the Spokane area, Charter Spectrum channel 1209 in the Coeur d'Alene area and the Palouse, and channel 2 (in both standard and high definition) on Dish Network and DirecTV.
The station is also carried on cable systems in Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, both of which are double the size of KREM's American coverage area. One result of this is that stations in Calgary and Edmonton air American shows on Pacific Time, even though Calgary and Edmonton are both on Mountain Time. It is one of five local Spokane area television stations seen in Canada on the Shaw Direct satellite service. It can also been seen on local cable systems in eastern British Columbia.
While KREM is the primary CBS affiliate for the Spokane market, Sinclair Broadcast Group-owned KLEW-TV (channel 3), based in Lewiston, Idaho, also is a CBS affiliate. However, it focuses on the southern portion of the market. Both KREM and KLEW are available on Dish Network and DirecTV throughout the Spokane market.

KREM-TV signed on October 31, 1954 with an "inaugural program" at 6:30 p.m., followed by the 1933 movie The Private Life of Henry VIII. It initially had a dual affiliation with ABC and the DuMont Network, the latter shared with cross-town competitor KXLY-TV because of its then-CBS affiliation at the time. After DuMont dissolved, KREM continued as an ABC affiliate. In the late 1950s, the station was briefly affiliated with the NTA Film Network.
KREM-TV was affiliated with ABC until August 8, 1976, when it swapped affiliations with KXLY-TV, whom CBS immediately dropped for constantly pre-empting or delaying its network shows. KREM thus became a full member of the CBS network. Initially, CBS had approached KHQ-TV, while KREM was considered for a possible NBC affiliation because of the King Broadcasting Company's sister stations being NBC affiliates, but KREM decided to sign with CBS instead.
KREM-TV was originally owned by Cole Wylie alongside KREM radio (AM 970, now KTTO; and FM 92.9, now KZZU-FM). The King Broadcasting Company, run by Seattle businesswoman Dorothy Bullitt, bought the KREM stations from Wylie in 1957; the radio stations were sold off in 1984. (Coincidentally, the former KREM-FM is now a sister station to KXLY-TV.) However, channel 2 retained the -TV suffix in its callsign until 2009.
King Broadcasting was sold in 1992 to the Providence Journal Company, which merged with Belo Corporation five years later. On June 13, 2013, the Gannett Company announced that it would acquire Belo. The sale was completed on December 23.
On June 29, 2015, the Gannett Company split in two, with one side specializing in print media and the other side specializing in broadcast and digital media. KREM and KSKN were retained by the latter company, named Tegna.
KREM and KSKN are a part of a cluster of television stations in the Northwestern United States owned by Tegna, which includes KING-TV and its sister station KONG in Seattle; KGW in Portland, Oregon; and KTVB in Boise. All four stations had provided material to co-owned Northwest Cable News, a regional 24-hour cable news service based in Seattle that served much of the region. KREM was the only non-NBC affiliate to be a primary contributor to NWCN, with the exception of KSKN and Seattle independent station KONG. The channel shut down on January 6, 2017.
The station's digital signal is multiplexed:
|Channel||Video||Aspect||PSIP Short Name||Programming|
|2.1||1080i||16:9||KREM-HD||Main KREM programming / CBS|
KREM discontinued regular programming on its analog signal, over VHF channel 2, on June 12, 2009, the official date in which full-power television stations in the United States transitioned from analog to digital broadcasts under federal mandate. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 20. Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former VHF analog channel 2.
KREM currently features CBS programming, as well as local news, public affairs and syndicated entertainment programming including The 700 Club, Dr. Phil, and 2 Broke Girls, the latter of which airs first run episodes on CBS.
KREM airs 28½ hours of newscasts with a two-hour morning broadcast, a noon telecast, and evening telecast at 4:00, 5:00, 6:00, and 11:00 p.m., along with weekend telecasts every Saturday and Sunday a 5:00, 6:00, and 11:00 p.m. KREM is still the only station in Spokane to hold a monopoly on midday newscasts for the Spokane area as of 2019.
In April 2010, KREM and KSKN began broadcasting its local newscasts in 16:9 enhanced definition widescreen, and KREM became the third station in Spokane to switch in either HD or widescreen.
From September 15, 2014 to January 2, 2015, KREM was the only station to air their newscasts from 7:00-9:00 a.m. on its sister station KSKN. KREM switched to Gannett's "This is Home" music and graphics package on October 25, 2014 at the 5:00 newscast. KREM became the last station in the Spokane market to switch their newscasts to HD.
KREM is rebroadcast on the following translator stations.
The Washington gubernatorial election of 1960 took place on November 8, 1960, between incumbent Democratic governor Albert D. Rosellini and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Lloyd J. Andrews, nominated by the Republican Party.
Rosellini was re-elected to a second term as Governor of Washington, in a close race with Andrews. The election was the first in Washington state history to feature televised gubernatorial debates.1976 in American television
This is a list of American television-related events in 1976.1997 Edward R. Murrow Awards (Radio Television Digital News Association)
The 1997 Edward R. Murrow Awards were presented by the Radio-Television News Directors Association (RTNDA), now renamed the Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) in recognition of what the association terms "outstanding achievements in electronic journalism." National winners were selected from a pool of regional award winners. Below are the 1997 national and regional award winners, which recognizes coverage that aired during the previous 1996 calendar year.
Categories that are not listed either had no entrants or the entries received were not deemed worthy of the award. For regional awards, it is worth noting the states included in each region have changed through the years. The lists below indicate which states are included in each region for the 1997 awards. The category currently called Breaking News was called "Spot News Coverage" in 1997, so the lists below have been edited to read Breaking/Spot News to avoid any confusion.

Channel 70 was removed from television use in 1983, but was formerly used by television stations in North America which broadcast on 806-812 MHz. In the United States, channels 70-83 served primarily as a "translator band" containing repeater transmitters to fill gaps in coverage for existing stations. Many are now defunct, the rest were to have been moved to lower frequencies:
KTTC (NBC Rochester, Minnesota) licenses to operate repeaters K70DR Blue Earth and K79BK Fairmont, Minnesota (channels 70 and 79 respectively) were renewed by the US Federal Communications Commission in 1999 but were off the air by the end of 2011.
NTIA had listed K70DR and K70FL (both on analog channel 70) among the LPTV operations to be unaffected by the 2009 US ATSC digital television transition, based on license information current as of 2008. These two channel 70 repeaters were the last to remain licensed anywhere in the channel 70-83 range; as noted above, K70DR went dark at the end of 2011; K70FL moved to channel 23 and subsequently went dark.
CJBR-TV (Radio-Canada Rimouski) rebroadcaster CJEX-TV Estcourt, signed on in 1958 but is no longer on the air. Estcourt is now served directly by CKRT-TV, an affiliate station in Rivière-du-Loup.

Channel 72 was removed from television use in 1983, but was formerly used by television stations in North America which broadcast on 818-824 MHz. In the United States, channels 70-83 served primarily as a "translator band" containing repeater transmitters to fill gaps in coverage for existing stations:
The Midwest Program on Airborne Television Instruction (MPATI) had used UHF channels 72 & 76 (KS2XGA and KS2XGD, respectively) on an experimental basis in stratocasting operation from 1961-1967. The costs involved ultimately proved prohibitive.

Channel 73 was formerly used by a handful of television stations in North America which broadcast on 824-830 MHz. It was removed from television use in 1983 and the frequencies reassigned to analog mobile telephony.
As higher frequencies were less able to diffract around terrestrial obstacles, very few stations originated on channel 73. The channel was available when the UHF TV band opened in 1953, but the few who did use UHF 73 initially soon moved to lower frequencies or went dark:
WFMJ-TV (NBC Youngstown, Ohio) was launched on March 8, 1953 on channel 73. The station moved to its current channel, 21, on August 7, 1954.
WLOK-TV in Lima, Ohio broadcast on channel 73 from April 18, 1953 until December 8, 1954. On April 24, 1955 the station became WIMA-TV, moving to Channel 35. It is now WLIO, digital VHF 8.
WTVU 73 in Scranton, Pennsylvania originated broadcasts from 8/17/1953 to 7/1/1955 (1kW TPO) as an independent and (very briefly) as a DuMont affiliate; it is no longer operational.For much of the history of UHF TV broadcasting in the United States, channel 70–83 served primarily as a "translator band" for repeater transmitters filling gaps in coverage for existing stations:

Channel 74 has been removed from television use in 1983, but was formerly used by television stations in North America which broadcast on 830-836 MHz. In the United States, channels 70-83 served primarily as a "translator band" containing repeater transmitters to fill gaps in coverage for existing stations:

"The Fight Song" is the fight song of the Washington State University (WSU) in Pullman, Washington. The music to the tune was composed in 1919 by WSU student Phyllis Sayles with fellow student Zella Melcher penning the lyrics. Sayles, who had transferred to WSU from Northwestern University two years before composing "The Fight Song", is also responsible for arranging the 1917 edition of the Northwestern University Songbook.A non-scientific, 1997 survey undertaken by the Spokesman-Review found few students, employees, and supporters of WSU knew the lyrics to the song, noting that "when it comes to the acid test of Cougar spirit – the ability to sing the fight song on a moment’s notice – almost everyone flunks." Nonetheless, the 1985 film Volunteers features a lyrically correct rendition of "The Fight Song" by John Candy, whose character, Tommy Tuttle, is an alumnus of the university. In the plotline of that film, "The Fight Song" is subsequently adopted by a group of Thai communist partisans as a battle cry.In 2013 new uniforms for the Washington State Cougars men's basketball team were debuted which featured the lyrics to "The Fight Song" on the backs of both home and away jerseys.Some supporters of Washington State University's athletic teams have been known to construct banjos out of used tins of Cougar Gold cheese (a cheddar produced by the Washington State University Creamery) which they then use to perform "The Fight Song." These instruments are colloquially known as "canjos."VPM-FM
