RUMORS: WPIX may add a 6:00 p.m. newscast.

WPIX 11 / New York City (“PIX 11”)

RUMORS ONLY: The following is just rumors and ONLY rumors.

We are hearing reports from Tuned-In NYC and from Behind NY News, that WPIX 11 is ready to add a weeknight 6:00 p.m. newscast to cap on the success of the weeknight hour-long 5:00 p.m. newscast. We don’t know if it could be a half-hour newscast or an hour-long newscast. It could be launched as early as the Spring but these are unconfirmed reports at this time.

The same way as unconfirmed as when WPIX 11 was planning to add a 3-hour weekend morning newscast from 6:00-9:00 a.m. and then add a weekday hour-long newscast at 11:00 a.m., back last year in 2014. Those reports later became unconfirmed and untrue because WPIX 11 never launched them.

We’ll see how these reports go. Again… these are just Rumors and RUMORS ONLY. Once we have confirming reports about this, we will surely let you know here on The Changing Newscasts Blog.

  1. TV listings like Titan TV and Zap 2 It TV listings make mistakes and misprints like a few weeks ago when I sent a tip that WHDH-TV in Boston got a 4:30am morning newscasts both TV listings sources showed that that got a 4:30am newscast and the station never got a 4:30am newscast. I do think sometime soon thought WHDH-TV Boston will get into the 4:30am news race.
