PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — KOIN 6 will be among 171 Nexstar stations across the country that will start their daily broadcasts with the playing of the U.S. National Anthem.

The Star-Spangled Banner was once a staple on local television stations, signifying the beginning or end of the broadcast day and Nexstar is restoring this long-held tradition.

Starting Sept. 2, the national anthem will be played at 3:59 a.m. every day on KOIN 6.

The anthem will be played by emerging talented artists, who will record their own unique versions of the Star-Spangled Banner at Belmont University’s Ocean Way Studios.

This unique collaboration supports higher education in business for the music and entertainment industry while providing aspiring professional artists and songwriters a national distribution platform to showcase their respective talents.
