KEYC-TV announced the addition of an NBC and CW affiliation, complementing the station's family of channels. KEYC presently serves as southern Minnesota's and northern Iowa's local CBS and FOX network affiliates.
The new station, KMNF, will be available with an over-the-air antenna on channel 7 and will also be carried by cable and satellite systems.
"The addition of NBC to our well established CBS and FOX programming will offer viewers more news and entertainment options on a local level," said Ed Woloszyn, General Manager of KEYC News 12 & FOX Mankato.
The CW will air on KMNF-LD's digital sub channel 7.2.
“Having The CW affiliation on KMNF’s secondary digital channel will allow us the opportunity to serve more people in southern Minnesota by providing more options for information and entertainment programming. We can’t wait to welcome The CW Network and its groundbreaking shows to their new home,” adds Woloszyn.
The new channels are expected to be launched in the fall.
