Better Kansas City will be a lifestyle and entertainment show with host Kelly Jones, the current co-anchor of It's Your Morning on KCTV5 News.
The show will feature a blend of local and national entertainment, lifestyle and information important to the entire family.
"We are excited about this new program launch because it extends our opportunity to reach out to the people of Kansas City and provide them with more local programming that will benefit their lives. Better Kansas City will be a show about Kansas City and the people who live here," Bobby Totsch, vice president and general manager of KCTV5 and KSMO-TV, said Friday.
Better Kansas City will be produced in a newly designed studio and air live Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. on KCTV5.
KSMO-TV will air a repeat each day at 1 p.m.
KCTV5.com will be the home of live streaming video for Better Kansas City, and the segments will be posted to the website.
The show aims to serve women looking to discover a range of practical and exciting products and services for their families. Better Kansas City will also highlight special local opportunities and events in Kansas City along with a range of regional and national topics including movies, cooking, music and much more.
Totsch said the new show will compliment KCTV5 and KSMO's "Your News" brand. He said the stations are committed to delivering local programming important to you.
