FIRST ON THE BLOG: An option for 11:00 a.m. news in Central Wisconsin is here. WAOW 9 has recently added a midday newscast called Newsline 9 Midday. This brings Central Wisconsin, a 2nd option for a midday newscast at that timeslot in the market. The newscast is anchored by Nate Barrett with StormTrack 9 Weather from Meteorologist Justin Loew.
This newscast now competes with WJFW 12’s NewsWatch 12 at 11:00 a.m. at that timeslot while WSAW 7’s NewsChannel 7 at Noon remains the ONLY ones on at that timeslot. Give WAOW 9 some credit for finally jumping into the midday bandwagon. Plus, they produce a weekday 7:00-8:00 a.m. and weeknight-only 9:00-9:30 p.m. newscast for WFXS 55.
Let the competition at midday begin!
