Manassas, VA – KPLE-CD will receive the prestigious NRB Station of the Year Award (Low Power) during the February 27th Television Reception at the NRB Convention & Exposition.

“KPLE serves a diverse population around the clock in an area that has been rocked by tragedy,” said NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright.  “Their message of hope has brought comfort and peace to family members and colleagues of the fallen soldiers at Fort Hood.”

KPLE-CD is a local ministry of Killeen Christian Broadcasting Corporation, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.  KPLE is the only Christian television station serving the Waco-Temple-Killeen market with a population base of approximately 450,000 including Fort Hood, the nation's largest military installation.

The NRB Station of the Year Award (Low Power) is presented—with an understanding of budgetary restraints and broadcast limitations—to a television station that displays innovative and creative programming through its daily schedule; demonstrates sound financial decisions; is a force for the Gospel in its coverage of local Christian events, issues and stories; demonstrates a commitment to produce local programming to meet the spiritual needs of people within the TV station's broadcast area; and works in partnership with local churches and ministries to provide a media platform for voices unable to be heard elsewhere.
