The CW Network set to land on KSKN-22 in the fall

KSKN-22 will become Spokane’s CW Network affiliate when that new network launches in September.

KSKN is Spokane’s WB affiliate. The CW Network will be the product of the upcoming merger between the WB and UPN networks.

The CW Network will consist of the top shows from the old WB and UPN (including “Gilmore Girls” and “Everybody Hates Chris,” among many others), as well as some new programming.

DJ Wilson, the KREM-KSKN general manager, said it will “allow viewers in the Inland Northwest one-stop shopping for some of the best shows on TV.”

The CW schedule will run during prime time seven days a week, with other blocks on weekday afternoons and Saturday mornings. KSKN will continue to run its lineup of syndicated and local shows, including “KREM-2 News at 10,” “Dr. Phil,” “Friends” and Seattle Mariners broadcasts.

The official announcement came Monday, when the CW Network signed agreements with 12 affiliates around the country, including KSKN.

KSKN is KREM-2’s sister station. Both are owned by the Belo Corp., a media conglomerate based in Dallas.

Spokane has been without a UPN affiliate since the first of the year, when KQUP-24 dropped its affiliation.
