News in Antelope County is becoming even bigger news across Northeast Nebraska.
The Antelope County News - the only county-wide media to cover all eight communities - has recently formed a partnership with Norfolk-based radio stations US92 and 94 Rock to expand its news coverage both online and on air.
According to owner Carrie Pitzer, the ACN expansion will further the reach of news coverage to better serve Antelope County. The online-only local daily media was launched Jan. 1, 2014, and is now reaching more than 5,000 visitors per day at www.MyAntelopeCountyNews.com.
“Our news coverage is reaching a lot of people in Antelope County and beyond, and this partnership will expand the coverage even further,” Pitzer said. “Our readers are coming from all over the state and country on a regular basis, but there are still more readers who have an interest in what’s happening here. This partnership shows our commitment to news coverage and to Antelope County.”
The ACN will also be expanding what it offers readers to include more video coverage, as well as audio to be heard on US92 and 94Rock. The Neligh-based office will also be equipped with a soundboard for immediate breaking news coverage - live from Neligh.
"We've been impressed with what Antelope County News has done to provide quality, reliable news coverage in our area. This partnership is a great opportunity for US92 and 94Rock to further serve our listening areas," Mike Flood said. "We take our news efforts very seriously and working with the ACN is another example of our stations' commitment to provide news coverage in the Elkhorn Valley."
Both stations have already begun utilizing ACN stories. Whether you follow either station on Facebook, view their online news and newscasts or listen to the radio stations, you’ve probably already seen the partnership in action.
“This is a great opportunity for our readers and advertisers,” Pitzer said. “We’re proud to be working with Mike, Angie and everyone associated with Flood Communications. They are wonderful people with a similar philosophy as ours. Community is important to them, just as it is to us. We’re excited to build this partnership with US92 and 94 Rock.”
