Geography[change | change source]
Sherman County is one of only four Kansas counties in Mountain Time. Since Sherman County is part of the Wichita media market, prime-time television in the county is aired from 6 to 9 p.m. local time, rather than 7 to 10 p.m. as is normal in the Central and Mountain time zones. However, cable providers carry the ABC and NBC affiliates from both Wichita and Denver. This allows viewers to view programs on those networks at the normal prime-time hours.
