Given its roots in the Post-Dispatch, KSDK has long been a leader in news. The quality news and reporting that has defined KSDK's history in St. Louis has resulted in numerous awards and consistently higher ratings.

Traditionally at least one newscast ends with local elementary schoolchildren flashing the hand signs for "5" and "1", signifying that, as a promo featuring the kids said, "Even a 2nd grader could tell you that Channel 5 is Number 1."

News environments, graphics packages, and music

In 1997, a new news set was introduced, along with a new graphics package, which reinforced KSDK's 1989 rebranding from "Eyewitness News" to "NewsChannel 5."

The graphics package introduced with the new set was replaced in 2001 with one almost identical as those found at sister station WUSA in Washington, D.C.

Personalities

KSDK has a long history of not renewing the contracts of its most recognizable and experienced personalities. They often move to another St. Louis television station. Rick Edlund, Ruth Ezell, Dan Gray, Jean Jackson, and John Pertzborn are just a few of the most notable in what is quite an extensive list.


Not all of KSDK's past personalities left the station under such circumstances, however. When compared to other St. Louis stations, or other stations of similar market size (DMA # 21), KSDK has had an unusually large number of its former personalities go on to network positions: Paul Goodloe was hired by The Weather Channel in 1999; Janice Huff moved on to KRON and eventually to WNBC where she can be seen occasionally on NBC's Today filling in for Al Roker; Dave Murray eventually became the meteorologist for ABC's Good Morning America, then moved on to KTVI in St. Louis, where he still is today; Ann Thompson is the Chief Environmental Affairs Correspondent for NBC News; Debbye Turner is a contributor on CBS's The Early Show; when Matt Winer and Trey Wingo both moved to SportsCenter on ESPN, many local viewers opined that KSDK was a "farm team" for ESPN.

KSDK: Information from Answers.com (3432 words)
KSDK debuted a new graphic package, music (NBC Flagship), and news environment on February 6, 2006 (consisting of a sit-down interview set, a smaller reporting desk, a color-changing backdrop used for demonstrations like cooking segments, a new main news desk, and a new "Weather Plus Weather Center") due to KSDK's switch to high-definition.
KSDK also debuted an updated logo that is essentially the same as the current logo but in the new logo the grey has been replaced by shiny silver and the red seems deeper and darker (and is also shiny).
KSDK is also a major sponsor and partner in the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and the St. Louis Race for the Cure, which in 2006 overtook Denver as the largest in the country with more than 64,000 participants.
