KSTP-TV launched a new, locally-produced program called Minnesota Live on Tuesday, September 7th. Minnesota Live airs weekdays from 9:00-10:00 a.m. Anchored by 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS anchors Megan Newquist and Chris Egert, Minnesota Live is an hour-long, weekday lifestyle show highlighting what makes Minnesota an incredible place to live.
Through partnerships with Hubbard Broadcasting-owned television stations, WDIO-TV in Duluth and KAAL-TV in Rochester, viewers will learn more about unique Minnesota hidden gems, spots to visit and events happening around the state. The show is positively Minnesota and we are excited for you to watch. "We have a long-history of local programming at KSTP and now feels like the right time to add to that," Mandy Tadych, director of programming and promotions, said in a statement. "Minnesota Live will offer viewers something positive, informative and local, weekdays at 9 a.m. I'm confident the show will grow to be a staple in our community."
Mike Marcotte serves as the show's Executive Producer. "Minnesota Live is filling a space that is currently left untouched in the Twin Cities. We're taking topics affecting all Minnesotans, and we discuss why it impacts your life. At the same time, we're sharing the stories of Minnesota individuals, groups and businesses doing amazing things. Our goal is to educate and unite."
