FIRST ON THE BLOG: Charlottesville’s ONLY local newscast at 7:00 p.m. is gone.
I have just checked the Charlottesville TV listings (have not checked it since August of 2013) and have now recently realized that WCAV 19 and WVAW 16 (both owned by Gray Television) are no longer airing Charlottesville TONIGHT at 7:00 p.m. The half-hour newscast, produced by WCAV 19 and shown on both WCAV 19 and WVAW 16, is no longer shown and is replaced on WCAV 19 by Inside Edition and on WVAW 16 by Family Feud. With this, Charlottesville no longer has a 7:00 p.m. newscast as WVIR 29 doesn’t produce one at all.
This is a bad move for those who get home by 6:30 p.m. and now have to wait till 10:00 p.m. for the latest news. Bad move, WCAV 19.
