KRBK

KRBK, virtual channel 49, is a Fox-affiliated television station serving Springfield, United States, licensed to Osage Beach. The station is owned by Nexstar Media Group, as part of a duopoly with Springfield-licensed MyNetworkTV affiliate KOZL-TV; the three stations share studios on East Division Street in Springfield and transmitter facilities on Switchgrass Road, north of Fordland. The station first signed on the air on August 1, 2009, it became the MyNetworkTV affiliate for the Ozarks. At the time KRBK signed on, MyNetworkTV programming had not been available in the market for several months, after Harrison-based KWBM switched to Daystar upon being sold to the network as part of Equity Media Holdings's auction of its television stations; the station branded as "KRBK-HD". KRBK's transmitter was plotted to be located halfway between Springfield and Jefferson City in northern Laclede County, giving it rimshot signals within Springfield and Jefferson City; this is possible because Osage Beach spills into both Camden and Miller counties, is thus split between the two markets.

Most of the city is in part of the Springfield market. However, a small sliver in the north is in Miller County, part of the Columbia–Jefferson City market; the transmitter was moved to Eldridge, in northeastern Polk County in the Springfield market. On June 20, 2011, Fox announced that it would end its affiliation with the network's Springfield charter affiliate, KSFX-TV following a dispute between the network and that station's owner Nexstar Broadcasting Group over Fox's proposal to increase the amount of retransmission consent fees that its stations must divide with the network; the switch became official on September 1, 2011, with KSFX-TV changing its call letters to KOZL-TV and became an independent station. With the addition of Fox programming on the station, KRBK relegated MyNetworkTV to a secondary affiliation, delaying its programming by two hours to 9:00 to 11:00 p.m.. The station changed its on-air branding to "FOX KRBK". On September 8, 2014, MyNetworkTV programming moved from KRBK to KOZL.

On that same date, KRBK rebranded as "Fox 5," in reference to its primary channel position in the market on Mediacom's Springfield-area system and on other local cable and satellite providers within the Springfield market. On August 2, 2018, as part of a press release formally announcing its $2.25-million purchase of CW affiliate WHDF/Florence–Huntsville, Alabama from Lockwood Broadcast Group, Nexstar announced its intent to acquire KRBK from Koplar Communications for $16.45 million. Nexstar concurrently assumed the station's operations through a time brokerage agreement that took effect the day prior; the transaction resulted in the formation of a virtual triopoly with Nexstar-owned KOZL-TV—putting KRBK under common ownership with the station from which it assumed the Fox affiliation seven years earlier—and CBS affiliate KOLR, which Nexstar manages through a master services agreement with Mission Broadcasting. In October 2018, KRBK relocated its primary transmitter to the Fordland antenna farm, which provides over-the-air coverage comparable to the market's other full-power stations.

Subsequently, on October 22, KRBK's operations were integrated into KOZL/KOLR's studio facilities on East Division Street. The sale was finalized on November 1; the arrangement—including the preceding time brokerage agreement—placed KRBK in the unusual position of being the senior partner as a Fox-affiliated station in a virtual triopoly involving a CBS affiliate. The station's digital signal is multiplexed: On January 1, 2014, KRBK launched a second digital subchannel carrying the classic television network MeTV. On March 1, 2017, Ion Television was added to KRBK's 49.4 subchannel. In April 2013, KRBK improved its signal coverage in this vast and mountainous market through the implementation of a distributed single-frequency network, consisting of five specially engineered slot antennas positioned throughout the Ozarks. All of the repeaters broadcast high definition digital signals on UHF channel 49. Due to the single-frequency system, th

Rice Lake (Ontario)

Rice Lake is a lake located in Northumberland and Peterborough counties in south-eastern Ontario. The lake is located south of the city of Peterborough, the Kawartha Lakes and north of Cobourg, it is part of the Trent-Severn Waterway, which flows into the lake by the Otonabee and out via the Trent. The lake is 5 km wide, its maximum depth is 10m, with a surface water level at 187 m above sea level, raised to its present height by the Hastings Dam, built in the 19th century as part of the Trent-Severn canal system. Natives called it Pemadashdakota or "lake of the burning plains". A drumlin field is located northwest of the lake, the lake's islands are submerged drumlins. Rice Lake nearly bisects the Oak Ridges Moraine, with three wedges to the west, one wedge to the east which has terminus at the Trent River. A narrow corridor to the south of Rice Lake connects these wedges. Rice Lake is shallow and was named for the wild rice which grew in it and was harvested by native people of the area. Most of the extensive stands of wild rice found in here were wiped out when water levels were raised in the lake by the construction of the waterway.

The village of Bewdley sits on the west end of the lake and the town of Hastings sits on the east. Prehistoric burial mounds are found at Serpent Mounds Park on the north shore of the lake. Other places of interest include the Native Reserves of Hiawatha. Other communities include Roseneath, Gores Landing, Keene and Harwood; the Cobourg and Peterborough Railway was completed in 1854 and crossed Rice Lake from Harwood to Hiawatha on a 4 kilometres line of wooden trestles. However, the thick layers of ice that cover the lake in the winter damaged the bridge beyond repair and it was declared unsafe and closed within six years. Sections of the railway bed are still visible on the south side of the lake. In the late 19th century, both before and after the railway bridge, steamboats provided both passenger and goods services, which could navigate up the Otonabee River as far as Peterborough. After the bridge failed, the Cobourg railway continued to run to Harwood; as well as lumber, the railway found a new use bringing iron ore from the Marmora quarries further east.

These were brought by barge up the Trent and along Rice Lake, before being loaded on wagons and taken to the harbour at Cobourg. As Cobourg developed as a tourist town, the railway brought recreational fishermen up to Rice Lake. Rice Lake is now an attractive tourist area and is recognized for its recreational and sport fisheries. Rice Lake fish include panfish, walleye and bass. In addition in recreational fishing a number of annual fishing contests are held here. An annual charity poker run boat race starting from Bewdley is held the first Saturday after Labour Day, with proceeds going to the Children's Wish Foundation. Islands in the lake include: Coughlins Island, Cow Island, Black Island, Foley Island, Grasshopper Island, Grape Island, Harmony Island, Harris Island, Hickory Island, Long Island, Margaret Island, Muskrat Island, Paudaush Island, Rack Island, Scriver Island, Sheep Island, Spook Island, Sugar Island, Tic Island, White's Island.
