52 pick-up


KSBI puts its ‘I’ on Oklahoma.

By Rod Lott August 30th, 2011

When KSBI 52 calls itself a local television station, it means it. The channel’s fall lineup abounds with programming that isn’t just locally produced, but promotes local happenings.

KSBI’s new schedule includes:
• “Mind Games,” in which Oklahoma college students compete “in a battle of the brains” for scholarships worth $200,000;
• “High School Football Updates,” with live broadcasts of two to six games every Thursday and Friday night;
• “All About You: After Dark,” a Kealey McIntire-hosted talk show focused on fashion, fitness, health, careers, finance, music and more;
• “Oklahoma Live,” featuring local music, artists, actors and more, hosted by Lyn Hester;
• “OK Sports Wrap,” a sports magazine hosted by Mary Rachel Redman and Abigail Ogle;
• “Rodeo Opry,” shot in Stockyards City, airs some of the state’s greatest country talents;
• “Hollywood Spotlight,” hosted by Dino Lalli; and
• “Dog Talk,” about man’s best friend, hosted by Pat Becker.

A few syndicated programs round out the lineup, such as the game show “Cash Cab,” the long-running sitcom “The King of Queens” and memorable moments from Johnny Carson’s reign on “The Tonight Show.” For more information, visit ksbitv.com or check out the video below. —Rod Lott
