Best TV Station - 2009
KETC-TV (Channel 9)
Who needs cable when we have Channel 9? Beginning this year with the digital TV conversion, KETC has been broadcasting four channels on its dial. Channel 9.1 shows traditional PBS programming such as Sesame Street, The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer and Antiques Roadshow, as well as locally produced shows Donnybrook and Living St. Louis. Channel 9.2 (KETC Kids) airs 24 hours of children's programming; Channel 9.3 (KETC World) broadcasts news and documentaries; and Channel 9.4 (KETC Create) offers shows on cooking, remodeling, travel and other hobbies. These four unique channels in one are akin to having CNN, HGTV, Nickelodeon and the Travel Channel. Again, who needs cable?
