KMOV Television Thursday announced that Steve Savard and the station have reached an agreement will keep Savard as anchor of News 4 at 6 & 10 through at least the end of 2016.
Steve has been with the station nearly 20 years, and has been anchoring the #1 late newscast in St. Louis alongside co-anchor Sharon Reed since December 2012. Steve also has been anchoring News 4 at 6 with Reed since late May.
Previously, Savard worked as weekend and substitute news anchor going back to 2006. He originally worked as sports director for the station.
Since Savard moved into a full-time anchor position, KMOV has experienced significant ratings improvement across the board. In the just-completed October ratings period, News 4 at 10 ranked as the highest rated newscast in St. Louis in total viewers, and finished #1 in the time period in adults 25-54.
