FIRST ON THE BLOG: KLTV 7 and KTRE 9 has expanded their weekend news broadcasts. And are simulcast on each station.
Good Morning East Texas has expanded to weekends and is shown for an hour at 8:00 a.m. This newscasts competes with KETK 56’s KETK Today at 8:00 a.m. for weekend morning news in the market. Also, the 10:00 p.m. Sunday newscast of East Texas News has expanded to an hour. This newscast obviously competes with the rest, but the 10:30 p.m. newscast is alone with no competition. All newscasts are produced by KLTV 7 and simulcast on KTRE 9, with the exception of the weeknight 6:00 and 10:00 p.m. newscasts, in which both newscasts are separate.
East Texas has more news on weekends, thanks to KLTV 7 and KTRE 9.
