KARE-TV, the NBC affiliate in the Minneapolis/St. Paul market, has announced plans to begin broadcasting all of its local newscasts in high definition beginning late April.
With this move, KARE 11 becomes the first and only local station in its market to broadcast HD news. It is estimated that less than a dozen stations in the U.S. are currently broadcasting news in HD.
With the launch of HD broadcasts, KARE said it would also unveil a new news set complete with Sony studio HD cameras.
