Nine Network to Halt Production of Stay Tuned After Five Years

Last Updated by Dale Fisher on

St. Louis, MO — March 6, 2017 — In an effort to continuously refine how we serve the community and cater to a rapidly shifting media marketplace, the Nine Network will end production of Stay Tuned.  Over the past five years, the show brought community leaders to the table to discuss some of the foremost issues affecting the St. Louis region and beyond.

Stay Tuned, hosted by Casey Nolen, convened leading civic voices to debate topics such as school accreditation, community startups and stadium financing. The program’s goal was always to foster a broader community conversation on matters of local importance.

“We’re so tremendously grateful to Casey Nolen for the role he played in advancing civic dialogue in the St. Louis region during Stay Tuned’s time on air,” said Nine Network President and CEO Jack Galmiche. “We’re continuously refining how we use our considerable broadcast and production capabilities to serve the region, and the insights and experience we gained from the show are invaluable.”

The Nine Network will continue to broadcast its seven other local productions—Donnybrook, Donnybrook…Your Turn, Living St. Louis, Arts America, SciTech Now, Feast TV, and Night at the Symphony—across its four channels (Nine PBS, Nine Create, Nine World and the newly launched Nine PBS KIDS). Nine Network viewers can continue to watch our award-winning local current affairs programming on Donnybrook and Donnybrook…Your Turn, in addition to national public affairs programming on programs like PBS Newshour, BBC World News and Frontline.
