KIIT-CD is a Class A television station in North Platte, Nebraska, United States, broadcasting locally as an affiliate of Fox. It is owned by Gray Television, which also owns full-powered NBC affiliate KNOP-TV and low-power CBS affiliate KNPL-LD.

Although KIIT broadcasts a digital signal, it is limited to the immediate North Platte area.[1] It is therefore simulcast on KNOP's digital subchannel.[2] Fox programming also airs in the area on Lincoln's KFXL-TV, which is carried on KWNB's subchannel. KIIT is also carried as channel 5 on the North Platte Charter Spectrum and Allo Communications cable systems, and channel 11 on Dish Network. The Charter and Allo feeds of KIIT-CD are available in high definition on channels 786 and 305 respectively; however, Dish Network does not carry any North Platte locals in HD.

From the grant of its original construction permit on December 12, 1994 through June 26, 2014, the station was assigned the translator-style call sign of K11TW,[3] and retained it even after obtaining class A status in 2001. However, outside of Federal Communications Commission-required station identification, the station has always called itself "KIIT" on the air. In the station's mid-years, it was an Independent station before becoming a charter UPN affiliate in 1995, also aired programming from The WB until 1999 when the station dropped both networks and became a Fox affiliate.

On November 20, 2013, Hoak Media announced the sale of most of its stations, including K11TW and KNOP-TV, to Gray Television. The sale made them sister stations to KNPL.[4]
