FIRST ON THE BLOG: Well… a new competitor has surfaced in the Ozarks. That’s Springfield, Missouri, TO YOU! Anyways, I just recently noticed that KRBK 49 in that market has started producing a local newscast. The newscast is called FOX KRBK News at 9:00, even though the newscast is only 10 minutes long. It’s a brand new newscast that recently started in the spring of 2014 and includes local news and FOX KRBK First Alert Weather. Since it’s only 10 minutes though, MyNetwork TV Primetime follows the 9:00 p.m. local news at 9:10 p.m.
This new newscast competes with KYTV’s KY3 News at 9:00 over on The Ozarks CW (K15CZ / KSPR-DT 33.2; hour-long from Sundays-Fridays and half-hour on Saturdays) and KOLR’s KOLR 10 News at 9:00 on Z-27 KOZL (Independent; half-hour, every night)
For a preview of it’s new newscast, go to FOX5KRBK.com (yes, it says FOX 5 KRBK . com; maybe because the station is on cable channel 5)
