NORFOLK – News Channel Nebraska announced today that it will televise more than 65 Nebraska School Activities Association (NSAA) sanctioned high school sporting events live on its statewide network this fall.

With coverage stretching across Nebraska, student-athletes and schools from nearly 60 communities will be showcased on the network. Softball and volleyball contests will be broadcast primarily on Tuesdays and Thursdays. On Fridays the network will broadcast three football games simultaneously each night.

“If you want to see what makes Nebraska so special, Friday night football under the lights across our state live on NCN is must see TV this fall,” said Mike Flood, Founder and Owner of News Channel Nebraska. 

News Channel Nebraska will also cover select state football games throughout the playoffs, including the semifinal round, thanks to its online streaming partnership with the National Federation of High Schools (NFHS) Network.

In addition to the high school schedule, News Channel Nebraska will continue to broadcast live all home football games for the University of Nebraska at Kearney, Doane University, and Wayne State College.

NCN has proven to be the statewide leader when it comes to multi-camera sports broadcasts. The network traditionally covers more than 250 events a year and has carried more than 1,000 high school events in its four years on the air.

This past March News Channel Nebraska broke new ground by broadcasting 24 first round and semifinal games at the girls and boys state basketball tournaments in Lincoln.

News Channel Nebraska is the most widely distributed privately owned news network in Nebraska, reaching over 550,000 homes. It was founded in 2015 and is headquartered in Norfolk. It is an independent TV network focused on rolling news coverage and live events. NCN is operated by Flood Communications, which owns eight radio stations, Telemundo Nebraska and News Channel Nebraska.
