About Channel 6
In August 1949, WOWT, Channel 6 became the first television station in the state of Nebraska. Over the years, the owners and employees of Channel 6 have maintained their commitment to viewers. We are continually discovering ways to add firsts, offering viewers the best coverage possible. WOWT is proud to bring the Heartland many firsts…
• First to launch a newscast in Omaha
• First in Color
• First with a 4pm newscast
• First with a weekend newscast
• First to provide a local news website
• First to broadcast in high definition
Today, WOWT Channel 6 is still leading the way. We not only deliver local news through our traditional newscasts, we offer more ways of receiving our local news than any other news gathering organization in Omaha. This reflects our dedication to serving our community with integrity now and for years to come.
We were one of the first local television station websites in the state. Today WOWT.com remains one of the market leaders, providing our visitors with news and information throughout the day.
The Weather Authority Channel is WOWT’s second channel providing viewers with 24 hour weather information. The Weather Authority Channel features weather information, Channel 6 News replays, as well as hourly updates from the Channel 6 Weather Authority Team.
