Dakota Datebook: The first television in North Dakota
April 3, 2023
April 3 is the anniversary of North Dakota's first television station going on the air as a regular commercial station. It was 1953, and that first year, Minot's KCJB – now KXMC – chartered a plane to fly in, from Minneapolis, taped coverage of each day of the World Series.
Most of the shows KCJB aired were live programs put together by local teachers, ministers, county agents and actors.
