Mornings and the early part of daytime feature syndicated newsmagazines and a five-hour block of news, weather and agricultural commodity market prices. An additional newscast airs during the evening hours. The remainder of the daytime and evening schedule consists of horse-related magazines, coverage of rodeo and other Western sports, rural lifestyle programs, reruns of classic television programs with rural appeal, and music programs centered around country music, polka and Southern gospel.
