Nexstar Media Group (NASDAQ: NXST) has announced that six Sacramento TV stations are working together to offer NEXTGEN TV to Central Valley, California, residents. The NEXTGEN TV system includes expanded audio and video options, as well as additional innovative capabilities, including emergency alerts. NEXTGEN also allows TV stations to personalize their broadcasts and make their content more relevant and engaging for viewers. According to the announcement, Sacramento is the first city in Northern California to offer commercial NEXTGEN TV, although almost 40 other early-adopter cities across the country are also providing the service. In addition, the company also announced that its wholly owned cable network, Nexstar Media Inc., is adding two new programs: “On Balance with Leland Vittert,” scheduled to air at 8 p.m. ET, and “NewsNation: Rush Hour,” featuring Nichole Berlie and scheduled to air at 6 p.m. ET. Nexstar Media Inc. reaches approximately 75 million U.S. television households. “No one else has instant access to as many newsrooms as we have in the Nexstar family of stations,” said “NewsNation” president of news Michael Corn in the press release. “‘Rush Hour’ and ‘On Balance’ emphasize our commitment to building a unique, one-of-a-kind news network that is independent, respects its viewers, and remains dedicated to keeping them engaged, with just a little bit of unpredictability thrown in for good measure.”
