FIRST ON THE BLOG: It looks like WAAY 31 has expired one of their news broadcasts.
Since September of this year, WAAY 31 has discontinued their half-hour 4:00 p.m. newscast. What was known as WAAY 31 First News at 4:00 has now been replaced by The Meredith Vieira Show. With this discontinuation, WAFF 48 is now the ONLY station in the market to air weekday news at 4:00 p.m. and it’s an hour-long. Plus, WAAY 31 now only broadcasts 2 evening newscasts on weeknights at 5:00 and 10:00 p.m., just like on weekends as well.
It seems like WAAY 31 just don’t care about news after all.
