FIRST ON THE BLOG: Speaking of Baltimore… one of WBFF 45’s rivals has taken one of their news broadcasts and expand it to weekends.
WBAL 11 has recently expanded their weekday 10:00 p.m. broadcast to weekends. 11 News at 10:00 has expanded to weekends, but is still a half-hour newscast and is seen on WBAL-DT 11.2, known as WBAL+, which carries a mix of Me-TV programs, as well as local newscasts (weekdays from 7:00-8:00 a.m. and now, nightly at 10:00 p.m. as well as weekend morning repeats), Baltimore Ravens programming and other programming.
The 10:00 p.m. weekend newscast is anchored by Deborah Weiner, 11 InstaWeather+ from AMS/Sealed meteorologist John Collins and 11 Sports from Pete Gilbert. The new 10:00 p.m. weekend newscast will now make WBAL 11, able to compete 7-days a week against WBFF 45’s longer-established hour-long 10:00 p.m. newscast.
