NORFOLK - News Channel Nebraska and the University of Nebraska are teaming up in an effort to continue serving rural Nebraska.
The locally-owned, statewide television network has entered an agreement with the NU Athletic Department to carry the Husker Football Show and the Husker Basketball Show for 26 weeks this fall and winter.
"Rural Nebraska is important to the Huskers," NU Athletic Director Trev Alberts tells NCN. "We are thankful for this partnership with News Channel Nebraska as it allows for further distribution of our Husker content across our state."
The 30-minute show will included one-on-one game recaps, analysis and highlights with Scott Frost and Fred Hoiberg. Episodes will air weekly on Sunday Nights and on Monday as well.
"It is important for NCN to serve rural Nebraska," NCN Founder Mike Flood added. "This effort allows us to achieve our mission while providing our viewers with something they deserve and enjoy."
NCN historically focuses its sports coverage on highlighting communities across the state by televising hundreds of high school games every year, which is something that won't be changing.
"NCN is so excited to partner with the University of Nebraska," Flood Communications CEO Andy Ruback added. "This will further add to our outstanding sports coverage we offer our viewers. Go Big Red!"
The show will air six times each week allowing viewers to watch at their convenience. Nebraskans can tune in to NCN every Sunday at 11 PM or 11:30 PM, or every Monday at 9:30 AM, 10:30 PM, 11 PM or 11:30 PM to watch the show.
The show episodes will also be archived on NewsChannelNebraska.com to watch on demand. Click here to watch.
