FIRST ON THE BLOG: Well, it looked like an experiment that has now ended in Fresno.
Back on January 6th, 2013, KAIL 7 debuted a half-hour 10:00 p.m. newscast from KFSN 30. Now in 2014, after just short of 2 years, KAIL 7 has recently discontinued the 10:00 p.m. newscast produced by KFSN 30, which was called ABC 30 Action News LIVE at 10:00 on My 7. It was a half-hour weeknight-only 10:00 p.m. newscast, produced with resources from the KFSN 30 news team.
With this change now, KMPH 26 now becomes the ONLY station to produce a primetime 10:00 p.m. newscast in the market. And it’s been an hour-long newscast for years, which probably lead to the cancellation of the KFSN 30-produced newscast, as well as probably due to low ratings.
KAIL 7 has always been an entertainment-only station. No surprise here that the experiment here went awful.
