MANHATTAN -- Nexstar Broadcasting Group, Inc. Chairman, President, and CEO Perry Sook rang the opening bell at the NASDAQ MarketSite on Times Square in New York City this morning. It's to celebrate 10 years of trading on the NASDAQ.

Nexstar was founded in 1996 in Scranton, Pennsylvania. The company went public in November 2003. Nexstar has grown to become one of the top 15 Television broadcasters in the United States. In the past two years, including acquisitions awaiting regulatory approval, Nexstar has acquired 49 television stations and two digital media companies totaling more than $826.2 million, nearly doubling the size of its portfolio. 

"Today's milestone or stepping stone would not be possible without the hard work of over 3,000 employees," Sook said. "And while Nexstar is the company name, we are really a collection of local businesses serving local communities in 20 states all around the United Stares. So at our heart, we are a local service business, and we happen to be publicly traded."

Nexstar is based in Irving. Nexstar owns and operates KAMR NBC 4. Nexstar has a shared services agreement with Mission Broadcasting, which owns KCIT Fox 14.
