MyNetworkTV Picks Up Affil. in Salt Lake City

MyNetworkTV is getting a new affiliate in Salt Lake City. Beginning Aug. 18, KCSG, a former independent station, will begin clearing MyNetworkTV programming. The network was formerly cleared on KJZZ, owned by Larry H. Miller Broadcasting.

The new affiliation with KCSG, owned by Southwest Media, gets MyNetworkTV broader distribution throughout the state of Utah, on over-the-air channels 4 and 16, cable channel 6, Dish Network channel 37, DirecTV channel 44 and Mesquite channel 99. KCSG is also the only TV station providing locally produced news and other programming outside northern Utah.

“KCSG is excited about the opportunity to be affiliated with MyNetworkTV. Being with a major network enhances our programming with target demos we have not had before,” said Ray Hardy, general manager of KCSG, which will be rebranded MyKCSGTV.

In addition to the 12 hours of weekly prime time programming, KCSG will continue its local newscasts at 7 a.m. to 8 a.m., 5:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., and 9 p.m. to 10 p.m., as well as other local programming.
