Nielsen DMA #140. We cover a six-county region in Southern Oregon and Northern California, serving 400,000 viewers in over 167,000 households.
KTVL is committed to providing relevant information and entertainment to the communities we serve. KTVL's award-winning News10 newscasts aggressively report local news, weather and sports, throughout every weekday and on weekends, and 24/7 on-line.
KTVL was the first commercial broadcaster in our area to offer HD transmissions, and the first to begin multicasting. In 2007, we became the first TV station in Oregon to retransmit our digital signal on translators, bringing HD programming to viewers unable to receive our transmitter signal. KTVL was the first local broadcaster to offer on-demand video on our website. We are committed to providing timely and useful news and information on-line, and are aggressively meeting that promise every day.
Our News10 Crime Stopper features have led to the apprehension and arrest of hundreds of suspected criminals. Our weekly Crime Stoppers Meth Watch program is the region's only regular report on Meth and its impact on our community.
In addition to our seven-day-a-week newscast presentations, KTVL is very active in the community, sponsoring local events and assisting many non-profit organizations.
In 2007, KTVL was recognized by the Oregon Associated Press for "Best Newscast" and "Overall Excellence." This was in addition to many other awards recognizing our reporters and anchor teams. Our news graphics were nominated for an Emmy. KTVL is regularly honored for our involvement in the community, with recent recognitions from the United Way, Children's Advocacy Center and Access Food Share.
