My KKTV preview

So My KKTV will launch Sept. 5 to coincide with myNetworkTV's launch. KK's hiring a new anchor and a new meteorologist for the 6:30 and 9 p.m. newscasts, although the 9 p.m. won't launch until KK's contract with KXRM runs out Sept. 30. MyKK will also rebroadcast KK's regular news at 7-9 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 11 p.m.

myNetworkTV's programming will be in HD on the subchannel in 720. So KK will be airing side-by-side HD on CBS and the subchannel. Emily Edwards at KK says there's enough room. We'll watch on Sept. 5 and see.

In addition to myNetwork's slate of short-run soaps (each program will air five nights a week for 13 weeks, then give way to something new), myKK will air "Oprah" at 9:30 p.m., "The Insider" at 6 p.m., plus some other syndicated stuff like "Blind Date" at 11:30 p.m., "Mad About You" at 10:30, "Judge Alex" at 3-5 p.m., "Geraldo" at noon and 5 p.m.

In repsonse to the question in comments, there were no cookies at the launch party. But there was ice cream and apple pie. Mmmmmm.

One follow-up note to Tuesday's TV Talk: As part of its partnership with KK, Clear Channel's four stations are airing the JonBenet press conference

There is not enough room in 19.3Mbps for good 1080i and 720p together. Don't kill your HD, KKTV! Please!

Why do I need a big antennae to get KKTV HD right now? I get 5 and 13 without one. Is KKTV on some sort of low power or something?
