KBMT will have an earlier “Daybreak,” starting next Monday.

KBMT 12 / Beaumont – Port Arthur, TX (“12 KBMT ABC”)
KBMT-DT 12.2 / Beaumont – Port Arthur, TX (“K-JAC: Your NBC”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: Jeremy keeps sending me in tips and they are very helpful to this blog. He actually recently sent me at least 2 more tips in. This is the first one…

… KBMT 12 will become the first station in Southeast Texas with a 4:30 a.m. morning newscast, when it expands starting next Monday, January 19th. 12 News Daybreak at 4:30 a.m., as otherwise known, will become the earliest morning newscast start in the area.

Tracy Kennick, Brian Burns and 12 News First Alert Weather with Meteorologist Jeff Gerber will all helm the new half-hour broadcast. The broadcast will be simulcast on both KBMT 12.1 (ABC) – 12 KBMT ABC – and KBMT 12.2 (NBC) – K-JAC: Your NBC, the reason why I’m showing you both logos. KFDM 6 will continue to start their 2-hour morning newscast, The Morning Show, at 5:00 a.m. with another 2 hours on KBTV 4 from 7:00-9:00 a.m.

If you want an earlier Daybreak, then you got it Southeast Texas. It’s coming next week on KBMT 12. Enjoy the 4:30 a.m. morning start that plenty of other markets have had for years now (including South Florida, my home market.)

I did receive another tip from Jeremy… the next story is coming up.
