KFYR-TV 1PLACE: ST BEST LocaL TV STaTion the very latest in audio-visual technology, representing a major investment by parent company, Gray Television. Years of planning, months of building, many weeks of training. That’s what it’s taken to launch KFYR-TV’s brand new look, and with it, the first fully-automated news organization in the state. The set is vibrant and new, the studio is stateof-the-art, but that’s just the beginning. Behind the scenes is an entirely new operating system that takes advantage of The changes include six automated studio cameras, an 18-monitor array and a lot of moving parts, both in studio and behind the scenes. We’ve already received wonderful feedback from our viewers, and will continue to maximize this amazing new technology for years to come. KFYR-TV has come a long way from its first broadcast on December 19, 1953. Since then, the station has always kept up with the times. In 1955, engineers established a microwave system, sending the signal out to viewers in surrounding areas. In 1964 the company erected a tower that stood well over 1,100 feet high on a hill near St. Anthony, ND, improving the signal even further. Videotape replaced film in the mid- 1970s, and a computerized weather graphics system was added shortly thereafter. And of course, with computers came a myriad of changes, from scripting, to graphics, to producing and directing a newscast. In 2009, KFYR-TV began broadcasting in digital, bringing you the crystal clear picture you see today. Thank you to the readers of the Bismarck Tribune, for naming KFYR-TV the Best of the Best. We are dedicated to keeping up with changes, but even more, we’re determined to continue bringing you the news, weather and sports information you’ve come to rely on, as KFYR-TV continues to be Your News Leader.
