Nexstar Broadcasting has announced that their station, KLAF-TV in Lafayette, will become the first NBC affiliated station that will be based in Lafayette starting July 1 of this year.

KLAF-TV has also announced today that they will be launching local news programming on the station starting in the early part of 2016.

Tom Poehler, Vice President and General Manager of KADN-TV and KLAF-TV says,


“We are looking forward to launching the market’s first NBC affiliated station on KLAF-TV which reflects our commitment to providing viewers with the most relevant, compelling and informative content and community-focused programming. For many years NBC programming has been segmented with three different signals that come from outside of our market. We are excited to announce this relationship with NBC and expand our commitment to all viewers in the Lafayette / Acadiana community by bringing an uninterrupted [HD] signal of NBC’s exceptional array of primetime programming, high-quality sports and entertainment offerings on KLAF-TV. In addition, to address the needs of our local viewers, plans are underway for KLAF-TV to debut entirely new, innovative local news programming in early 2016. We look forward to updating the local community on this initiative in the coming months.”


KLAF-TV has been a MyNetwork affiliate since 2006.
