FIRST ON THE BLOG: WWBT 12 has now joined the others on Sunday mornings. Here’s the explanation.
WWBT 12 has now recently expanded it’s Sunday morning newscast to start at 6:00 a.m. Previously, the station was only on from 7:00-8:00 and 9:00-10:00 a.m. The 6:00 a.m. start now competes with WTVR 6 (CBS 6 News This Morning) and WRIC 8 (8 News Good Morning Richmond) in that timeslot. The new 6:00 a.m. newscast is anchored by WWBT 12’s current Sunday morning news team, Sarah Bloom and NBC 12 First Warning Weather Meteorologist Samantha Roberts.
No other major additions or expansions to report.
