KIIT-CA is a television station in North Platte, Nebraska, 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.

KIIT-CA currently broadcasts only an analog signal, though it has a construction permit to convert channel 11 to digital. Digital television viewers in the North Platte area can receive KIIT via KNOP's digital subcarrier.[1] Fox programming also airs in the area on Lincoln's KFXL-TV, which is carried on KWNB's subcarrier. KIIT is also carried as channel 5 on the North Platte Charter Communications and Allo Communications cable systems, and channel 11 on Dish Network. The Charter and Allo feeds of KIIT-CA are available in high definition; however, Dish Network does not carry any North Platte locals in HD.

The station currently does not have a website.

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,[2] 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.[3]
