Sinclair owned KDNL (St. Louis) is getting back into the news game....sort of.
The station says it is going to start doing a newscast once again, but that it will have a conservative slant.
The station will produce "The Allman Report," which it describes as a non-traditional newscast and airing at 5 and 10 p.m. weeknights, in January.
Jamie Allman (pictured), formerly with KMOV and a conservative radio host in town will anchor the show while keeping his radio gig.
In a statement, Scott Livingston, vice president of news for KDNL owner Sinclair Broadcast Group, said:
"This will be a unique news program focusing on comprehensive analysis of stories that impact the community. The goal is to go beyond the headlines and provide context and perspective of a particular issue. We know that there is an appetite for a more in-depth conversation on the issues. We want to engage our viewing audience and get St. Louis talking."
Look for the newscast to go belly up right after the 2016 elections.
