Well well… look who’s coming back to deliver local news in Evansville after a 14 year break… WEVV 44.
14 years after airing its last newscast (2001), WEVV 44 will soon be owned by Texas-based Bayou City Broadcasting and when it does, the station will air local news coverage once again. The deal is expected to finalize over the next month and WEVV 44’s general manager Tim Black says that the new owner wants local news to return to the programming. They haven’t had a local newscast since 2001.
WEVV 44 is affiliated with CBS and is also affiliated with FOX/MyNetwork TV on DT2 and on W47EE-D 47. This is great news for a market that seems to be growing now.
