NEXTGEN TV’s Latest New Market: Springfield, Mo.


Four broadcast TV stations serving Southwest Missouri have become the first in the market to offer local viewers NEXTGEN TV stations.

The launch of the ATSC 3.0-powered signals involves Nexstar Media Group’s local stations in Springfield, Mo., and the Mission Broadcasting property Nexstar operates.

The Springfield market launch includes Mission-owned CBS affiliate KOLR-10; Nexstar-owned FOX affiliate KRBK-TV and MyNetwork TV affiliate KOZL-TV; and Gray Television‘s KSPR-LD 33, the market’s ABC affiliate.

KOZL is the “lighthouse” station for the NEXTGEN TV signals.

BitPath, which is developing new data broadcasting services, led the planning process
and deployment efforts across the four television stations.
