Wyoming Station Shuts Down Colorado Subchannel

By Kevin Eck 

Norther Colorado 5, the Fort Collins, CO, CBS affiliate has shut down.

The CBS affiliate aired programming including news from KGWN, on the Cheyenne, WY, CBS affiliate’s digital subchannel.

“Despite the efforts of many great people and an investment over the past five years, NoCo5 concluded that it could no longer effectively serve the Northern Colorado area,” said station manager Tregg White. “We regret that all their efforts and all of our investments were simply insufficient to make this hyper-regional station a viable long-term operation. To our loyal viewers and local advertisers, we say thank you for your support.”


Fort Collins is roughly 60 miles North of Denver and 45 miles South of Cheyenne. According to The Coloradoan the station was unable to keep up with the larger and better funded stations broadcasting form nearby Denver.
