52 pick-up

KSBI puts its ‘I’ on Oklahoma.

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

Lights, camera, action!

How the Culture Chic got tube-tied.

This weekend, I did something for the very first time: I was on TV.

Before the taping, I spent a fair amount of time running through a plethora of scenarios that included me tumbling off stage, freezing up and having no words or actually sleeping through the spot.

I just knew this would happen.

Or this.

Luckily, I wasn't climbing on a piano or married to Kim Kardashian, so none of the terrible things happened. In fact, it was a lot of fun, and I got to chat with some lovely ladies at KSBI about fashion and style and places to shop in OKC.

Lynn Hester, Pat Becker and Kari King welcomed me into the studio and sat me down on the red couch. Their smiles made me calm down a considerable amount. They were pros and gave me a few quick tips before we went back on air.

Guess I did OK, because they invited me back! I look forward to sitting down and chatting with them again. Make sure to stay tuned into KSBI to keep tabs on all things Oklahoma.
