FIRST ON THE BLOG: There are some changes in the Northland that recently took place and here’s what happened in that market…
… First off, KDLH 3 has replaced a 90-minute all-weather block (which was called KDLH 3 Morning Weather, supplementing programming from AccuWeather-affiliated Northland’s NewsCenter WeatherNOW on KBJR-DT 6.3/KRII-DT 11.3) with a 60-minute simulcast of Cadigan and Kelly from 610 KDAL Radio on KDLH 3. CBS Morning News is now shown at 5:30 a.m. with the radio simulcast on for an hour at 6:00 a.m. which leads up to CBS This Morning at 7:00 a.m. The simulcast has been going on since October 13th of this year.
Second: KQDS 21 has expanded it’s weekday morning newscast to 90 minutes with the addition of a half-hour newscast at 6:30 a.m. FOX 21 News Sunrise, as the show is currently known, is now on from 6:30-8:00 a.m. and it still provides the area’s ONLY morning newscast at 7:00 a.m.
No other changes have been made at the other 2 stations in the market, KBJR 6/KRII 11 or WDIO 10/WIRT 13. You’re caught and now up-to-date, Duluth and The Northland.
