Weatherman Added to TV Station Exhibit

A life-sized cut out of Moe Milliken has been added to the television station display at the Nebraska Prairie Museum.

KHOL-TV (signifying Kearney, Holdrege TV) was the first rural television station in the country. It went on the air on Christmas eve of 1953. The station is now NTV, still located east of Axtell where the station began.

Stories of the live programming and on-air hi-jinx are documented in the display, featuring cameraman/handyman Bob Stolz, and weatherman/on-air personality Moe Milliken, both from Holdrege.
