Mormon church-owned Utah NBC affiliate to again air first-run Saturday Night Live episodes

A Mormon church-owned NBC television station in Utah plans to begin airing first-run Saturday Night Live episodes this fall after years of refusing to air the popular comedy show.

KSL-TV's Tami Ostmark says the move is part of a plan to make the station's lineup stronger and improve its relationship with NBC.

KSL-TV is owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and has not aired certain shows over the years due to violent or inappropriate content. But Ostmark says content was never the issue with SNL. She says the station didn't want to bump a popular sports show that aired at the same time.

First-run episodes of Saturday Night Live have previously aired on Utah's CW30 affiliate, KUCW.

KSL-TV announced the decision Wednesday on its Facebook page.
