ST. LOUIS – Dec. 8, 2017 – Just in time for the holiday season, a show that will uplift and make you feel good about the human spirit.  A special one-hour presentation of the Musial Awards will air in at least 12 U.S. cities starting this weekend and throughout December.

The Musial Awards – presented by Maryville University – celebrate the year’s greatest moments of sportsmanship and the biggest names in sports who embody class and character.  Produced by the St. Louis Sports Commission and the National Sportsmanship Foundation, the national event takes place annually in St. Louis.  This year’s show occurred on Nov. 18 at the Peabody Opera House.  The live event has been packaged into a one-hour broadcast that is being cleared on several TEGNA-owned stations around the country.  TEGNA is the parent company of KSDK Channel 5 in St. Louis.

Tomorrow, Dec. 9, the show can be seen in Dallas (WFAA Channel 8 at 4 p.m.), Jacksonville, Fla., (WJXX Channel 25 at 5 p.m.), and Sacramento (KXTV Channel 10 at 4 p.m.).  A list of all cities airing the broadcast along with airdates and times appears below.

In St. Louis, the Musial Awards can be seen on KSDK Channel 5 on Monday, Dec. 18 at 9 p.m.  This is the seventh year the station is airing the show, which is hosted by veteran KSDK anchor Mike Bush.  The broadcast is produced by Onyour6 Productions.  In September, the Musial Awards was recognized with a Mid-America Emmy Award for Sports – One Time Special.  It’s the fourth Emmy the show has won in that category and its eighth Emmy overall.

The 2017 Musial Awards broadcast features inspiring stories of sportsmanship from throughout North America.  The honorees profiled represent the best in sports and humanity, and include NASCAR driver Carl Edwards, U.S. Olympian and distance runner Abbey D’Agostino, Arizona Cardinals President Michael Bidwill, and six-time Olympic medalist Jackie Joyner-Kersee, who received the Stan Musial Lifetime Achievement Award – the highest award for sportsmanship.

The Musial Awards are named for Stan “The Man” Musial, the late St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Famer who was the ultimate good sport.  In addition to keeping his legacy alive, the mission of the Musial Awards is to inspire selflessness, integrity and civility in sports and society.  Its organizers want to have a transformational impact, empowering people across the nation to be good sports.
