KOTA Territory TV and KEVN don’t go off the air these days but that doesn’t mean we can’t pause for the “Star-Spangled Banner” once a day.

Beginning Monday, June 17, it will air right before 5 a.m., seven days a week on KOTA Territory TV.

The anthem will be on KEVN right before our rebroadcast of the news beginning Monday. It airs on weekdays at 6:58 a.m. and weekends at 5:58 a.m.

Reina Özbay, a 9 year-old Florida girl, sings the anthem. Watch the premiere edition in the video box above.

All Gray Television’s 93 stations across the country will air the national anthem.
