KVOA Channel 4

KVOA Channel 4 goes for a mad "news in the afternoon" power bloc. They start at 4 p.m. with some of the lighter fare; it whets your appetite. KVOA reels you in with weddings on biplanes--and then hits you with the harder news, about crime and how your retirement plan could be in danger. (Your retirement plan is in danger because the economy is shit, FYI.) They'll hit you with the sports, too. Even if all there is to say is that "the UA football team will probably put their pads on next week," they'll still keep you informed--because the channel has lots of news time to fill, and they fill it pretty well.
