KHQ ADOPTS CENTRALCASTING MODEL, UPGRADES MASTER CONTROL WITH ADVANCED BROADCAST SOLUTIONS

SEATAC, WA — For about three years, KHQ in Spokane, Wash. (DMA #75), had been relying on upconversion to deliver its HD content to audiences. With the help of premier systems integration firm Advanced Broadcast Solutions (ABS), the station upgraded its master control earlier this year to handle full HD – and converted the operation into a centralcasting hub for two other stations, KNDO and KNDU, as well as additional multiplexed channels serving the Yakima and the Tri-Cities (Kennewick, Pasco, and Richland) region in Washington (DMA #126).

The three NBC affiliates are owned by the KHQ Television Group, a subsidiary of Cowles Publishing Company. Each station also multicasts SWX Right Now, which provides local sports and weather coverage for Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho. The facility also handles master control for KGPX, an ION Media Networks station that is co-located at the facility but operated separately.
