Kiro-TV Sets Show Lineup For CBS Return

KIRO-TV yesterday announced its new program schedule effective when CBS returns to Channel 7 on June 30 after a two-year absence.

The station will go head-to-head with other stations in local and network news between 5 and 7 p.m. The first hour of the morning show "7 Live" will largely survive the switch to CBS. And four soap operas will join the midday lineup, bumping syndicated programming to other time slots or other stations.

Anchors of the adjusted schedule of local newscasts have not been announced.

Following a complicated series of ownership changes in the market, KIRO-TV is becoming the CBS affiliate and KSTW-TV, now CBS, will get KIRO's present network, UPN.

Here is KIRO-TV's weekday schedule:

5 a.m. - News.

7 a.m. - "7 Live This Morning." The new incarnation of "7 Live," previously a two-hour show, will include "cut-in" reports from CBS.

9 a.m. - Unannounced.
