KGWN-TV /CBS Cheyenne

KGWN-TV is the CBS-affiliated television station for Cheyenne, Wyoming. It broadcasts a high definition digital signal on UHF channel 30 (or virtual channel 5.1 via PSIP) from a transmitter in unincorporated Laramie County (west of Cheyenne) between I-80/U.S. 30 and WYO 225. Owned by Gray Television, KGWN has studios on East Lincolnway/East 14th Street/I-80 Business/U.S. 30 in Cheyenne.

Syndicated programming on the station includes Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, Wheel of Fortune, Judge Judy, and Dr. Phil among others. It operates a digital fill-in translator, K19FX-D channel 19, in Laramie from a transmitter in unincorporated Albany County near the Medicine Bow National Forest's northwestern boundary.

KSTF in Scottsbluff, Nebraska operates as a semi-satellite of KGWN. This station broadcasts a standard definition digital signal on UHF channel 29 (or virtual channel 10.1 via PSIP) from a transmitter along N-71 at the Scotts Bluff and Sioux County line. It can also be seen locally in Nebraska on Charter channel 6. KSTF does not broadcast over-the-air in high definition; however, the station is in the process of upgrading the microwave link between KGWN and KSTF from analog to digital, which will allow KSTF to begin high definition broadcasting.[1] An HD-feed of KGWN is available in Scottsbluff on Charter digital channel 785. The station is a full-time simulcast of KGWN except for preempting Dr. Phil and Wheel of Fortune on weeknights in favor of Entertainment Tonight and Recipe.tv. (Dr. Phil and Wheel of Fortune are available to Scottsbluff viewers on KDUH-TV, a satellite of Rapid City, South Dakota-based KOTA-TV.) KSTF also airs separate legal identifications and local commercial inserts during all programming. Although KSTF's master control and most internal operations are based out of KGWN's Cheyenne facility, it maintains an advertising sales office on North 10th Street/N-71 Business in Gering, Nebraska. There is no separate web address for KSTF, but Nebraska-specific headlines are provided through KGWN's website.
