Tiny Station Gets Major Carriage

Denver broadcasting vet Greg Armstrong runs KCDO; he launched it after a long stint atop former UPN affi liate KTVD, which Gannett bought in 2006. He and his staff of three wear multiple hats. “It’s a nice little, I hate to say it, mom-and-pop operation,” Armstrong says.
KCDO airs a mix of AgDay farmer fare, RTV classics and paid programming during the day, and a 10 p.m. news focused on northern Colorado and produced by KGWN Cheyenne’s Fort Collins bureau. KCDO has had distribution with satellite and smaller cable providers for more than a year, but the Comcast deal marks a mammoth boost.
“It gives us a little more credibility when we go talk to advertisers,” Armstrong says. “Hopefully, the whole thing feeds off itself.”
