Sherman County is one of only four Kansas counties to observe Mountain Standard Time. Since Sherman County is part of the Wichitamarker media market and the local broadcast stations are repeat signals of Wichita affiliates, prime-time programming 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 Denvermarker, affording viewers the opportunity to view programs on those networks at the normal prime-time hours.
