FIRST ON THE BLOG: As if we all thought newscast simulcasts from another market were dead, think again. And the following we are about to report is possibly one of the largest simulcasts between 2 big markets in America.
Starting today, KBCW 44 has added a LIVE 2-hour simulcast of KMAX 31’s Good Day Sacramento, Sacramento’s most-popular and most-watched morning newscast. The newscast will be on every Sunday morning from 9:00-11:00 a.m. on KBCW 44. Marianne McClary and Cody Stark are just 2 of Good Day‘s personalities that are featured on the program on Sunday mornings that viewers in the Bay Area on KBCW 44 will start to notice. This simulcast only applies to Sundays for now, as KBCW 44 still airs various programming, including religious and syndicated programming on weekday mornings and The CW’s One Magnificent Morning programming on Saturday mornings.
With this new addition, it will provide the Bay Area with the ONLY Sunday morning newscast at 10:00 a.m. and it will also cut KPIX 5 News Sunday Morning on KBCW 44, Cable 12 by half-hour. That program will now only be seen from 8:30-9:00 a.m. to allow for the 2-hour simulcast of Good Day Sacramento.
For those who wanna see Sacramento-based news for a change, then this would be good for them. And for those who love Good Day Sacramento, but have only seen it online, then this is nothing but good news coming true for long-time fans of the show.
KBCW 44… bringing you news from Sacramento on The Bay Area’s CW!
