Best Local TV Station

KTVB Channel 7

Was there any question about this? NBC hasn't dominated network television ratings since the 1990s, yet Boise's NBC affiliate dwarfs the competition in ratings, viewer loyalty and broadcast quality. There's rarely a local broadcast, morning, noon or night where Channel 7 isn't No. 1 in Boise. ktvb.com

2nd Place: Idaho Public TelevisionAntiques Roadshow, Curious George, Masterpiece. We love them all, but add in Idaho Public Television's own Dialogue, Outdoor Idaho and Idaho Reports, and you have a station that is at, or near, the list of most-watched PBS stations in the U.S. idahoptv.org

3rd Place: KIVI Channel 6—In the local commercial broadcasting scene, KIVI is a solid No. 2 in the ratings, behind KTVB. And when ABC's network programming is particularly strong, KIVI's 10 p.m. newscast benefits nicely. kivitv.com
