FIRST ON THE BLOG: Well, I didn’t about this till now. Back in the Spring of 2014, WPXT 51 dropped it’s 7:00 a.m. morning news program, produced by WCSH 6. The program was called WCSH NewsCenter 6 Morning Report Xtra at 7:00 a.m. and was an hour-long broadcast that featured the morning news team from WCSH 6. Unfortunately, it looks like the news program didn’t do well against WPFO 23’s hour-long Good Day Maine at 7:00 a.m. (which is produced by WGME 13 and is now the only newscast on from 7:00-8:00 a.m.) And now WPXT 51 carries no local news content at all.
Another failed local news attempt for WPXT 51, I guess.
