KNOP-TV, an NBC affiliate in North Platte, Nebraska, USA, is owned by Hoak Media along with local Fox affiliate KIIT. The station is also seen on rebroadcast translators K20DK south of Valentine, K35AL in Lexington, K09GW and K18DH in Broken Bow, and K21CY in Ogallala. All of the translators currently broadcast an analog signal.



The television station went on-air in December 1958. In 1968, it was purchased by Dick Shively and Ulysses Carlini Sr. After purchasing Hastings, Nebraska station KHAS-TV in 1997, Shively and Carlini operated the stations (as well as KIIT, which they founded in 1994) as Greater Nebraska Television. Shively died in 2003. In 2005, Greater Nebraska Television sold the stations to Hoak Media. Since early February 2009, KNOP's broadcasts have been digital-only.[2]
