A new look has come to “KOTA Territory News” and sister station KEVN in Rapid City, SD.

Gray, which also owns KSFY in Sioux Falls and whose purchase of KDLT in the same market is pending, cut the ribbon on a new television facility to house its West River duopoly.

A 40-year-old Rapid City building was remodeled to house the stations.

The renovation doubled the space in size, with a complete makeover of the existing 10,000 square feet as well as the addition of another 10,000 square feet in newly constructed space.

“Previously the two television stations were located at two different facilities in Rapid City,” said Chris Gross of KOTA/KEVN. “Bringing the two under one roof and sharing resources has enabled both local news operations to provide more content and news coverage to the Black Hills community.

KOTA has long been a ratings behemoth in the western part of the state.
