Program schedule Changes on KMOS-TV
You may notice that we have made several changes to the program schedule, and we hope that you find new programs to enjoy. As with any change, we know you may have questions and comments, and we would appreciate hearing from you. We want KMOS to become stronger and more responsive, and will consider your feedback as we move forward. The changes are reflected in our newly revised program guide (and pictured to the left).

In short, the changes were made based on viewership data and feedback over the last year. They include:
Creating Your Thursday, a weekly schedule that features central Missouri; Introducing Democracy Now! a national, independent, award-winning news program hosted by journalists Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez weeknights at 11:00, and broadcast of Charlie Rose at 10:00 several nights each week.

You can find Tavis Smiley and repeats of PBS NewsHour and Nightly Business Report on KMOS WORLD on Channel 6.3. This new service features documentaries and news programming.

Friday nights have changed with the addition of specials that comprise the PBS Fall Arts Festival - which is broadcast nationwide each Friday night at 8:00

We have added several Masterpiece Mystery! programs late on Fridays, which lead into the unique broadcast of the original Doctor Who episodes at 11:30. Of course we continue to provide our trusted childrens programming each weekday and weekend morning, as well as favorites like Antiques Roadshow, NOVA, Nature, Frontline, and Masterpiece to name a few.

Doctor Who
Fridays at 11:30 p.m.
Travel back in time to 1963 when a new science fiction series debuted on television. Now an international hit, Doctor Who began with these episodes, airing on KMOS-TV each Friday night. In the series pilot, schoolteachers Barbara Wright and Ian Chesterton become intrigued by one of their pupils, Susan Foreman, and visit her home address - a junkyard at 76 Totter's Lane where they meet her grandfather, the Doctor. The Doctor and Susan are aliens who travel through time and space in their ship, the TARDIS, which looks like an ordinary police box but actually houses a huge gleaming control room. The TARDIS takes them all to a Palaeolithic landscape where they encounter a tribe that has lost the secret of fire.

Thank You to the City of Jefferson!

KMOS-TV had a great time at the Multicultural Fall Festival on October 3. We thank everyone who stopped by to visit, meet Maya and Miguel, engage in our "magnetizing" activities, and learn the benefits of writing at any age as we celebrated one of the PBS Young Writers winners - Karsten, of Versailles. For two years in a row, his winning stories have placed in the national PBS competition, so it seemed only right to celebrate in the state's capital. Making the presentation was city mayor Carrie Tergin, along with PBS characters Maya and Miguel (left, and KMOS Education Coordinator Mary Clevenger (right).
Read all the 2015 stories, including Karsten's story "Who Needs Math?"

Celebrating all the finalists in the 2015 KMOS Young Writers Contest!

The Powerful Effects of Sesame Street
A new paper by Melissa Kearney, an economics professor at the University of Maryland, and Phillip Levine, an economics professor at Wellesley College, finds that kids can learn as much from Sesame Street as a preschool classroom. The most authoritative study ever done on the impact of Sesame Street, finds that one of public TV's most recognizable shows has delivered lasting educational benefits to millions of American children - benefits as powerful as the ones children get from going to preschool.
