From Print to TV in St. Louis

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

KSDK, the Tegna owned NBC affiliate in St. Louis, has made a new hire with a print background.

Christine Byers will join the team in January from her current job on the police beat for the Post-Dispatch.

While she doesn’t have TV experience, she knows the area well. She’s been covering crime for the paper since 2006 and writing about legal issues since 2009.

Byers will do television work as well as write pieces for the station’s website.
