KSDK Adding Newscasts to Post-’Oprah’ Lineup

St. Louis NBC-affiliate KSDK unveiled its new, post-”Oprah” programming schedule this week, announcing that it would add three new newscasts to its lineup.

The Gannett-owned station will air “Oprah” reruns through the summer and then start anew in September with a one-hour newscast replacing the daytime icon at 4:00 p.m. In addition to the new 4 p.m. show, KSDK will begin its morning news coverage a half-hour earlier, at 4:00 a.m., and will follow NBC’s “Today” with a new one-hour newscast at 10:00 a.m.

“With the departure of Oprah, it gives our news organization the opportunity to create and deliver a totally new newscast for St. Louis,” said Mike Shipley, KSDK’s news director. “We’re up to the challenge of providing fresh and innovative content for these new local shows.”

“Our new fall lineup reaffirms our commitment that local news is indeed our station’s priority,” said president and general manager Lynn Beall.
