Local 6 carries the digital torch for Winter Olympics

We are counting down to the Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang!

Since NBC will provide special coverage from the event, NBC affiliates participated in a “digital” torch relay. Our newsroom joined the fun. Below you can see a few of the cities where the torch was passed.

It began at KUAM in Guam.


Before going to KNBC in Los Angeles, California.



Then it arrived at KNBN in Rapid City, South Dakota.


Before going to KNEP in Scottsblffg, Nebraska.


And KVLY in Fargo, North Dakota.


Our digital torch then traveled down south through Topeka, Kansas.


And KCEN in Temple, Texas.


Before heading back north to KWQC in Davenport, Iowa.


Before crossing the Mississippi River and stopping by WMAQ in Chicago, Illinois.


And going to WFIE in Evansville, Indiana.


That’s where their newscrew tossed the torch to Local 6 Sports Director Jeff Bidwell who ran through our newsroom and studio…


Before sending it to WSMV in Nashville, Tennessee.
