New News: KSPR News at 4!

If you're a Facebook fan of KSPR or a friend of some of the news folks there (uh, me), you may have seen something yesterday about a new 4 p.m. show.

This is true. It was officially announced yesterday, though there had been a buzz about it in the newsroom for a few weeks.

Why? Well, this is the way news seems to be going. Syndicated television is declining, and more people appear to be interested in local news at earlier hours. At least, so I'm told.

What can you expect? We were told this show will be less of the same... meaning, it will not look like your standard newscast. My guess is that it will be like a meatier morning show. After all, it is an early afternoon newscast. Expect local newsmakers to come on the show and talk, probably expect more opportunity for anchors to show their personalities, expect more community events to be featured, perhaps more indepth coverage of local and national news. My guess.

Who will you watch? Ooh, now that's a good question. I can tell you, it probably won't be me... but I don't think it will necessarily be your usual suspects, either. Of course, we'll just have to see!

When will it start? When we launch the new set. Expect early November.
