The company that operates KOLN/KGIN (Channels 10/11) and several other Nebraska TV stations has brought local affiliates of The CW Network to Lincoln and Hastings.
Gray Television announced the new channels Monday.
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 Hastings. Charter/Spectrum customers will find it on channels 15 and 1212 in Lincoln and on channels 16 and 704 in Hastings. The CW Nebraska is also live on KIIT 11.2 in the North Platte market.
There are no immediate plans for local content on those channels, said Mallory Connelly, marketing director Gray. The CW’s prime-time programming includes "The Flash," "Supergirl," "Riverdale" and "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend."
“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.
