“As one of the nation’s largest local media companies, Nexstar remains committed to supporting the evolving needs and interests of the local communities that we proudly serve in Texas and across the United States,” stated Tim Busch, President of Nexstar Broadcasting, Inc. “We are excited to be hosting this unique, live Town Hall event with Governor Abbott, which will be televised and live-streamed statewide exclusively on Nexstar stations. Town Halls provide an important public forum for constituents to engage with local leaders on the issues that matter to them and their families. To ensure that we are addressing the information interests of all local voters, we are harnessing the combined resources of our local station operations in twelve markets throughout Texas, in addition to Dallas and Houston CW affiliates. We are grateful to Governor Abbott for allowing Nexstar to serve as host of this special Town Hall event and to the outstanding local communities across the great state of Texas for their continued viewership and support.”
