Gray Television supports local community interests by providing quality television broadcasting and exceptional service in each market we serve. Gray owns and/or operates television stations and leading digital properties in 91 television markets including the first or second highest rated television station in 85 markets. We are an unmatched broadcast pioneer that keeps getting bigger and better.
We constantly strive for excellence. Through upgrading to the latest technology and seeking new ways to stay on top in our markets, we focus on training and development of the best and brightest employees in the business.
KOLO is a station that gets the job done. Many of our employees have been with the company for years and they pride themselves on their expertise and their ability to succeed.
While Reno/Tahoe is a 100+ market, it has all the characteristics of a much larger west coast market. In fact, some say Reno has superior lifestyle and outdoor activities to its much larger neighboring markets. For these and many other reasons KOLO is able to attract top notch individuals.
We pride ourselves on not limiting ourselves to the "news conference or press release journalism" stories that are easy to get. Our journalists know they need to tell stories on issues that matter to the northern Nevada community and our viewers. Much of the station's identity is from KOLOCares, a program designed to better serve Northern Nevada through the wonderful non-profit organizations that are part of the community.
KOLOCares was recently honored by the National Association of Broadcasters' Celebration of Service to Community Award. Every station is tasked to serve their community, but KOLO takes pride in finding unique ways to help our non-profit partners to reach their goals.
Reno has an illustrious history of boom or bust, and right now the area is booming! The Reno/Sparks/Tahoe area no longer relies on casinos and gambling to draw tourists to the area.
With Tesla's gigafactory under construction, the Switch data site, and a host of distribution companies, the economy in Northern Nevada with its many tech companies in the area is booming and has become a much smaller version of Silicon Valley. Life in Reno/Tahoe is not just about work. Northern Nevada boasts remarkable outdoor activities highlighted by the spectacular beauty of Lake Tahoe, world renowned ski resorts in the Sierra, trout fishing in the Truckee River and Pyramid Lake, placid campgrounds, miles of hiking and biking trails and, yes, casinos.
San Francisco, Yosemite and Napa Valley are all an easy drive for a weekend getaway. Many Northern Californians spend their weekends in Reno, especially with the summer festivals that feature balloon races, air races, Hot August Nights and the nation's largest BBQ rib festival. There is always something happening in Reno, the "Biggest Little City in the World."
