KOLN, digital channel 10, is the CBS affiliate in Lincoln, Nebraska. It operates a satellite station, KGIN, on digital channel 11 in Grand Island. KGIN repeats all KOLN programming. The station also serves as the default CBS affiliate for North Platte; it airs its programming on two translators in that city. Syndicated programs on KOLN/KGIN includes Live with Kelly & Michael, Wheel of Fortune, and Jeopardy!. KOLN/KGIN also carried The Oprah Winfrey Show until the end of its run in 2011.
Combined, the two stations serve one of the largest coverage areas in the nation, stretching across 42 counties in southern and central Nebraska—almost two-thirds of the state's land mass—and an additional four counties in Kansas. The stations, branded together on-air as 10/11 (pronounced ten-eleven), are owned by Gray Television.
The station is officially part of the Lincoln/Hastings/Kearney television market, but this market has little basis in television reality and is only fully realized on the local satellite feeds. KOLN/KGIN and Fox affiliate KFXL-TV are the only full-power stations shared by the entire market. Via broadcast and cable, Lincoln and the eastern portions of the market receive NBC from WOWT in Omaha, ABC from KLKN in Lincoln (as well as KETV in Omaha) and The CW from KXVO in Omaha. The rest of the market receives ABC from KHGI-TV in Kearney and NBC from KHAS-TV in Hastings. Four counties in north central Kansas which border Nebraska (Jewell, Phillips, Republic and Smith) are also part of the Lincoln/Hastings/Kearney market and receive programming from the Hastings/Kearney side of the market as well as satellites of Wichita stations.
