What is The Nebraska Radio Network?
The Nebraska Radio Network provides morning and afternoon news and sports programming to broadcasters throughout the state. Our staff covers the biggest stories of the day from across the nation and the Husker state.

How is your news programming formatted?
We provide a two-minute Nebraska newscast, four times each morning (6, 7, 8 and 9) and twice each afternoon (5 and 6). We also feed a one-minute sports capsule (6 and 7 a.m.) Nebraska Radio Network Program Schedule » (PDF)

What are the contract terms?
The Nebraska Radio Network is offered on a market-exclusive, barter basis.

What’s my inventory commitment?
A maximum of 8 minutes per day (40 min/week). That’s assuming a sold-out week for the network. Network commercials not aired during programming may be cleared any time 6:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m., Monday-Friday.

How is programming distributed?
Our programs are distributed on AMC-8, transponder 17. NRN will provide satellite receiver.

Is there much paperwork involved?
The bare minimum. Each week you’ll receive (by fax) a one-page commercial log for the coming week, showing all Nebraska Radio Network programs and any network commercials scheduled within or adjacent. This is for your local scheduling use. At the end of each month you’ll receive (again, by fax) a one-page affidavit. Check it…sign it…fax it back…and you’re done. You will find additional information about the Nebraska Radio Network (including affidavits and logs) on our Affiliate Resources page.
