FIRST ON THE BLOG (other than The Florida Times-Union’s Jacksonville.com): Let the changes of the NEW WJAX CBS 47 and WFOX FOX 30 continue, but this time… it’s really good news.
For the first time in either of the stations’ history, Action News Jacksonville will debut weekend morning newscasts, BUT it will ONLY be on WFOX 30. Action News This Morning on FOX 30 will make it’s weekend debut, starting this weekend: September 27th and 28th. Here’s how the newscasts will run:
- Saturdays: 6:00-9:00 a.m.
- Sundays: 6:00-8:00 a.m.
This will provide WFOX 30 as to some leverage over WJAX 47, which will continue to air CBS News programming as well as some E/I, public affairs, religious and other kinds of programming on weekend mornings. No idea as to who will anchor the newscast, but the new newscast will push back it’s Sunday morning public affairs program Action News Sunday to 5:30 a.m. on WFOX 30. It will remain at 8:30 a.m. on WJAX 47.
This time, it’s finally some good news for Action News Jacksonville.
