FIRST ON THE BLOG: Well, that was short. It was just a few months ago (I say like 6-7 months ago) when WAFB started a different kind of a newscast called The Six30 in which it would offer news and weather but from a different perspective. Here’s a promotional photo on the program:
It turned out to be a short ride because now, the newscast has been canceled. The Six30 no longer exists and is now replaced by a repeat of 9 News at 6:00 from WAFB. In fact, all news content on WBXH are repeats now. It used to air a LIVE newscast at 9:00 p.m. but moved it up to 6:30 p.m. because it wasn’t doing well (I guess) after the WVLA-produced 9:00 p.m. newscast on WGMB 44. WBXH now airs repeats of local news content from WAFB, including the following:
- 7:00-9:00 a.m. – 9 News This Morning (the 5:00-7:00 a.m. repeat)
- 12:30-1:00 p.m. – 9 News at Noon (repeat)
- 6:30-7:00 p.m. – 9 News at 6:00 (repeat; this is what replaced The Six30)
No other additions, expansions or droppings are being reported from that market.
