DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — WDTN will be among 171 Nexstar stations across the country that will start their daily broadcasts with the playing of the United States 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 September 2, the national anthem will be played right before 2 NEWS Today begins, at 3:59 a.m., every day on WDTN.
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.Grab the FREE WDTN News App from the Apple Store or Google play.
