In 2007, the station purchased a 2nd larger production truck. The older equipment from the smaller truck was moved into the new larger truck while the studio control room equipment was moved into the smaller truck. This allowed for the most efficient use of resources as now the control room truck can roll out to cover events when the studio is not in use! On several occasions, both trucks are covering events on the same day.
In 2011, the new larger truck was re-equipped with high definition technology for higher quality productions and additional future revenue generation capabilities.
In 2015, the entire station was re-equipped with high definition equipment in preparation for new high definition cable channels. The upgrade also allowed for the control room to be functional so the smaller HD truck could be used exclusively for remote event productions again.
In our short history, we have won more than 40 regional and national awards. CTN is committed to bringing our viewers the best in neighborhood television by continuing to upgrade our equipment and always striving to keep our programming relevant to our Coon Rapids viewers.
