Not to mention their stations are in some of the smallest Nielsen DMA's in existence, including the smallest of all, KXGN in Glendive, MT. 

Alpena is two notches higher on the list, besting North Platte, NE.


I don't know how independent KNOP is in North Platte, but since WBKB does their own thing, it could really be the smallest market stand-alone news operation in the whole country.

The only thing worse than a bad open is one that pastes bad, out-of-place graphics on elements that are obviously canned. 

I've seen similar bits of the "STRAIGHT AHEAD" and "PLUS" that WTRF used in their 1997 look. 

Were they part of the package that had the bank of monitors that flew across the screen?
