Sinclair’s St. Louis ABC affiliate is giving local news another try.
The show will air at 5:00 and 10:00 p.m. nightly. In a press release, KDNL promised, “The newscast will be an informative, debate-driven format focusing on the topics of the day with guest commentators and a wide social media presence.”
“The goal is to go beyond the headlines and provide context and perspective of a particular issue,” said Sinclair Broadcast Group VP of news Scott Livingston. “We know that there is an appetite for a more in-depth conversation on the issues. We want to engage our viewing audience and get St. Louis talking.”
