Reports from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 18th September 1998:
WUSF 16 in West Palm Beach, Florida moves on to episode 1 of Kinda, the 5th Doctor story that introduced a new villain, focused on Tegan, and had barely any appearances from Nyssa in it. It all takes place on Deva Loka, a planet haunted by an infamous force. The episode airs at 11:30PM Saturday.

[DWAlliance Editor's Note: As mentioned in Letters of Comment, WUSF is in Tampa, not West Palm Beach]

Friday 25th September 1998:
WUSF 16 in TAMPA, Florida is NOT airing Doctor Who at 11:30PM this Saturday. They're having a pledge drive! The apparent start time is 11:55PM, and it's scheduled for 35 minutes. This week's episode is part 2 of Kinda. This 5th Doctor, Tegan, Adric, but not Nyssa story is generally loved or hated by fans. Trouble is brewing in paradise, and its teabag is Tegan. Meanwhile, two of the people on the human expedition go insane. Confused. Watch the episode to understand.

ยป The episode shown was actually part one, most likely at 11:30pm. The pledge has also been shifted two weeks on to 09 Oct 1998.
