KOLR-KOZL, Nexstar Broadcasting’s duopoly in Springfield, Mo., is set to open a studio in Branson next month.

The facility, which is located on Main Street in Branson, is currently under construction and slated to open in early June. KOLR-KOZL will also provide content to Nexstar and Mission Broadcasting stations in Joplin, Fayetteville and Little Rock from the space.

“The Branson area remains one of the fastest growing regions in the television market,” vice president and general manager Leo T. Henning said in a statement. “It is a significant driver of the economy for our region. It makes sense to have a daily point of presence there. In fact, it is long overdue.”
