FIRST ON THE BLOG: Probably our last update before Thanksgiving and this involves a newscast discontinuation in South Texas on a digital subchannel.
KIII 3 has recently discontinued 3 News First Edition at 7:00 a.m. on Me-TV Corpus Christi. It was an hour-long morning newscast, featuring the team of KIII 3’s First Edition and was shown on Me-TV Corpus Christi (KIII-DT 3.2) and not on it’s main channel KIII 3, so that station can air ABC’s Good Morning America.
Now with the discontinuation, First Edition is now only shown from 5:00-7:00 a.m. Also with the removal, KRIS 6 now airs the ONLY hour-long morning newscast at 7:00 a.m. for it’s independent station KDF-TV (K47DF-D2) with KRIS 6 News Sunrise at 7:00 a.m. on KDF-TV.
The station with More Local News in South Texas is actually showing Less Local News.
