We join this ten-minute clip during the final minute of the encore of the KELOLand 10 PM newscast. After some commercials comes KELOLand Sports Scoreboard, a quick rundown of final scores of regional high school games as well as NCAA and NBA action for the evening. Following this comes the station sign-off, displayng some technical info of KELO-TV and its three satellite stations, which would have been quite a mouthful for any announcer to recite. Afterwards its the Flag Salute SSB video that features Sandi Patti's rendition of the Anthem. After several seconds of black comes a 1950s-era black-and-white test pattern which quickly disappears and, after 30 more seconds of black, returns for an encore before the carrier is cut.
KELO-TV took to the air in May 1953 as South Dakota's first television station and carried programs from all four national networks. In 1960 Channel 11 became a full-time CBS network affiliate and remains so to the present day. Via its three full-power satellite stations and one translator located in Aberdeen (K24DT), KELO-TV covers the entire state of South Dakota as well as large areas of North Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa. This vast area of coverage, which covers the Central and Mountain time zones, is called KELOLand by the station (KELO rhymes with Jello).
