FIRST ON THE BLOG: Well… who knew? It looks like WXTX 54 (produced by WTVM 9) will have to keep their eyes out on this.
Recently, WLTZ 38 has added a half-hour, weeknight-ONLY 10:00 p.m. newscast on it’s digital subchannel, The CW Ga-Bama on WLTZ 38.2. Titled WLTZ First News at 10:00 on The CW Ga-Bama, the newscast now competes with the weeknight hour-long newscast of WXTX 54’s FOX 54 News at 10:00, which is produced by WTVM 9, the #1 station in the market. It does give the area, an alternative option for news at 10:00 p.m. in the market, just in case WXTX 54 shows FOX Sports programming or other programming that goes past 10:00 p.m. and are unable to show their 10:00 p.m. newscast.
It’s good to have an alternative and in Columbus, GA; they got one.
