KSTP Channel 5

KSTP Channel 5 has generously sponsored Thursday's Child for more than twenty years.  Tune in each Thursday during the 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. newscasts to meet some of Minnesota's Waiting Children as they join Rusty Gatenby for fun and games at sites throughout the metro.  If you missed a child spotlighted on television, you can view it on KSTP.


Once a month the Star Tribune kindly donates advertising space for featured children who are waiting for families.
