The National Anthem returns to start the broadcast day at KFOR

National Anthem


OKLAHOMA CITY – We have some exciting news about a new project at KFOR.

Each day on KFOR we will air the national anthem beginning at 3:58 a.m. This is right before our weekday newscasts.

As you know, The Star Spangled Banner was once a staple on local television stations and we are returning to that tradition.

This will be a bit different because we will utilize singers from across all music genres showcasing their own unique talents on the broadcast each day.

It is part of a new partnership with KFOR’s parent company, Nexstar Media, and Broadcast Music, Inc,. and Belmont University’s Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business.

From On September 14, 1814, U.S. soldiers at Baltimore’s Fort McHenry raised a huge American flag to celebrate a crucial victory over British forces during the War of 1812. The sight of those “broad stripes and bright stars” inspired Francis Scott Key to write a song that eventually became the United States national anthem.
