   KSDK-TV led its 10 p.m. newscast Sunday night with an apology for the station's role in a lockdown at Kirkwood High School last week.  

   News Anchor Mike Bush said the station hadn't intended to scare students, teachers or parents when it sent a reporter to the school for an investigative piece on school security.  When school personnel lost track of the reporter, they called his cell phone and learned he worked for KSDK, but they were unable to verify that he had been on assignment at the school.  That's when they locked down the building as a precaution.

   Bush went on to say that it doesn't matter what the station's intentions were, their actions "caused undue stress and fear."  

   Bush says KSDK General Manager (Lynn Beall) met with the Kirkwood Superintendent to apologize in person.  

   Bush says the Channel 5 news team spent the weekend evaluating what happened and what they could be doing differently.  He says they've "already begun implementing changes to make sure nothing like this happens again."

KSDK-TV pulls story after man found dead

ST. LOUIS, Mo (KTRS) Moments before an investigative report was supposed to broadcast on a St. Louis television station, it was pulled because the man highlighted in the story, was found dead.

Forty-year-old Jamie Hart filed a lawsuit against the "Better Business Bureau" in 2010, claiming the organization targeted him because he complained that the watchdog group wasn't’ treating him fairly. In the lawsuit, Hart asked for at least $500,000. The BBB denied any wrongdoing and the suit was dismissed a few months later.

Monday night, KSDK-TV decided to pull the "Five on Your Side" investigative story.

Investigators initially found no signs of foul play and the medical examiner said Hart did not suffer a heart attack. Toxicology tests are pending.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports station officials sent an e-mail to KSDK employees, that provided contact information for grief counselors.

   Two St. Louis television stations are about to get a little cozier, as their parent companies become one.  Virginia-based Gannett Company, which owns KSDK (Channel 5) is buying Dallas-based Belo Corporation, which owns KMOV (Channel 4).  

   If Belo shareholders and the Federal Communications Commission sign off on the $1.5 billion deal, Gannett will grow from 23 stations nationwide, to 43.  

   Because of the FCC's media ownership limits, KMOV and four other Belo Stations will operate under the independent ownership of Jack Sanders.  The Phoenix man is a former Belo executive.  

   Gannet officials say the news and sales operations at KMOV will stay independent from those at KSDK.
