KLST's parent company, Nexstar Broadcasting, is celebrating a mile stone this week: 10 years as a public trading company.

To help mark the occasion, Nexstar's CEO Perry Sook rang the NASDAQ opening bell.

Nexstar was founded in 19-96 in Pennsylvania with a single station purchase, going public in 2003.

Over the years they continued acquiring new stations including KLST.

In just the last two years Nexstar has grown to 49 television stations, becoming one of the top 15 broadcasters in the US.

After ringing the bell, Sook said "When we think about Nexstar we think of a company that has been successful reaching milestones. But it's not possible with hard work of more than 3,000 employees."

You can check out more photos from the opening bell on our website www.conchovalleyhomepage.com.

We’ll have more tonight during the news at 6 and 10.

There is also a video playing outside on the front of the NASDAQ Tower building in Manhattan showcasing Nexstar's accomplishments.  Our sister station WSYR in Syracuse is there and providing a live web stream from the tower.
