FIRST ON THE BLOG: Thanks to a forum post that I read on TVNewsTalk.net, I have first exclusive details about this and yes, another news expansion is coming to an already heavy news producer market in San Diego. And this may be my last post of the year, regarding an addition or an expansion of some kind.
XETV 6 is ready to add an hour-long 4:00 p.m. newscast starting January 12th. San Diego 6 News at 4:00, as it will be called, will be anchored by Jim Patton and Neda Iranpor with San Diego 6 Weather from chief meteorologist Sabrina Fein. With this addition, XETV 6 will have some pretty steep competition from the gecko as it will join KNSD 39’s long-established hour-long NBC 7 News at 4:00 and KSWB 69’s recently added earlier this year and hour-long FOX 5 News at 4:00 for local news in that timeslot in the market.
Just shows you that after the new year celebrations end, more and more local news is only coming towards our way.
