2 newscast expansions at KUSI…

KUSI-TV 51 / San Diego (“KUSI”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: Thanks to a tipster named T.L., KUSI 51 has expanded some newscasts and there are 2 of them. First off, KUSI 51 has expanded it’s early-evening news block with an hour-long newscast at 5:00 p.m., called KUSI News at 5:00. This 5:00-7:00 p.m. block now competes with KSWB 69 for the 2-hour news block. The new 5:00 p.m. newscast now competes with KFMB 8 (hour-long), KGTV 10 (hour-long), KNSD 39 (half-hour) and KSWB 69 (hour-long), leaving XETV 6 as the only station to still not produce news on weeknights at either 5:00 or 6:00 p.m. But this ain’t the only expansion…

… KUSI 51 has also expanded the weekend edition of Good Morning San Diego. The weekend edition now runs from 6:00-11:00 a.m. and is the longest-time consuming, weekend morning newscast in all of San Diego and it also matches the weekday edition’s run time to 5 hours. Dan Plante, Lisa Remillard and KUSI SuperCast Weather with AMS/Sealed Meteorologist Dave Scott will helm the new hour, as they have always been doing the 6:00-10:00 a.m. shows.
