WVTM will have an hour-long 4:00 p.m. newscast, starting September 8th.

WVTM-TV 13 / Birmingham – Tuscaloosa – Anniston (“Alabama’s 13”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: We received another great tip to us and this involves another expansion at WVTM 13. YES, another expansion.

It was like a week or 2 ago when we reported that Alabama’s 13 News expanded their morning newscast to 4:00 a.m. and expanded it’s 11:00 a.m. midday newscast to a full-hour, replacing Daytime Alabama which is now canceled. Well now, there’s gonna be EVEN MORE news coming to WVTM 13 (maybe because the station will be bought by Hearst?). Anyways, starting September 8th, Alabama’s 13 News at 4:00 will make it’s debut. A brand new hour-long newscast that will compete with WBMA-LD 58/WCFT 33/WJSU 40’s ABC 33/40 News, Focus at 4:00. This is just the 3rd expansion so far for WVTM 13 this year!

  1. Alabama’s 13 News Midday at 11:00 a.m., expanding to an hour-long, now competing entirely with WBMA-LD 58/WCFT 33/WJSU 40’s ABC 33/40 News Midday
  2. Alabama’s 13 News Today in Alabama expanded to 4:00 a.m., giving Central Alabama’s FIRST 4:00 a.m. morning newscast (all others start at 4:30 a.m.)
  3. Alabama’s 13 News at 4:00 makes it’s premiere on September 8th.

Ellen moves to 3:00 p.m. while The Doctors remain at 2:00 p.m. Bethenny is now canceled and NBC’s Days of our Lives will remain at 1:00 p.m. because The 700 Club will be on at noon, right after the expanded Alabama’s 13 News Midday.
