News Channel Nebraska was founded in 2015 at Norfolk, Nebraska. In 2017, Flood Communications announced the addition of Spanish-language network Telecommute, also called Telecommute Nebraska.

In addition to commercial advertising, N C N holds pledge drives and solicits donations in the same manner as non-commercial broadcasters.



News Channel Nebraska primarily focuses on rolling news coverage similar to the original CNN Headline News and the current News-net, whose owner and founder helped establish the format on the News Channel Nebraska stations. Newscasts air every hour and focus primarily on rural Nebraska stories with some coverage of the two major cities, Lincoln and Omaha, and weather forecasts every 10 minutes including former W T N H-TV meteorologist Ge-off Fox broadcasting from his home studio in Irvine, California.The network also includes extensive coverage of high school and small college sports with two broadcast trucks covering rural football and basketball games.There is a “north” and “south” feed which show different sports programs, with the other feed’s game rebroadcast on delay. High school sports programming requires a subscription when viewed online. In order to avoid conflicts of interest, articles and news coverage involving Flood are written by the Associated Press or Gray Television affiliates in Nebraska.

In March 2020, N C N launched Quarantine Tonight, a show featuring live music from local musicians originally produced as a service to viewers during the COVID-19 pandemic that proved popular enough to continue well past its original planned ending date. Flood was the host of Quarantine Tonight until he began his run for Congress, since then the program has been hosted by former News Channel Nebraska reporter Austen Ha-good.

N C N carries some limited syndicated lifestyle programming on weekend mornings, including Ag PhD, Ron Hazel-ton’s House-calls and P. Allen Smith Garden Style.
