FIRST ON THE BLOG: If you’re looking for news at 7:00 p.m. in Mid-Michigan, then… you got it. I checked TV listings for WNEM and realized that WNEM-DT 5.2 airs My 5 News at 7:00. I had to check if it was a LIVE broadcast or a repeat of an earlier newscast, but thanks to a tipster through facebook, it’s a LIVE broadcast.
My 5 News at 7:00 has been airing for at least a month now and is produced by WNEM-TV 5. It’s Mid-Michigan’s ONLY 7:00 p.m. news broadcast, but it’s not the first time that My 5 aired a LIVE broadcast from WNEM-TV 5. They used to air a 4:00 p.m. news broadcast for 3 years from 2006 until it was canceled in 2009. WNEM also airs an hour-long, nightly 10:00 p.m. broadcast for Sinclair-owned WSMH titled FOX 66 News at 10:00.
Both WNEM-TV and DT 5.2 are owned by Meredith Corporation.
