KOTV is no longer on the air at 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays.

KOTV-DT 6 / Tulsa (“KOTV 6”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: Well, a station in Tulsa no longer airs an early evening newscast on Saturdays.

KOTV 6 has decided to no longer air a 5:00 p.m. newscast on Saturdays. The newscast was one of two that was on at 5:00 p.m. in Tulsa and now KJRH 2 has the distinction of broadcasting the ONLY local newscast at 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays. And because KOTV 6 has yet to add a weekend morning newscast, KOTV 6’s Saturday newscasts now start at 6:00 p.m. with an hour-long newscast.

I will wonder when KOTV 6 will finally add a weekend morning newscast, since sister station KWTV 9 in O.K.C. does one. Only time will tell…

And no, no other changes were made in the Tulsa market.

  1. KOTV Should get a Saturday and Sunday morning newscast. I am surprised with the top rated news station in Tulsa that they don’t have a Saturday and Sunday Morning newscast. There sister station KWTV in OKC I know has Saturday and Sunday Morning news. I know it took KOTV forever and a day to get a 4:30am newscast and they finally did since I sent the tip that they were going to finally get a 4:30am newscast. 5:00pm Saturday newscast being cut no biggie maybe it was because there is too much National CBS Sports programming on Saturdays most of the time they probably couldn’t air the Saturday 5:00pm newscast because of CBS Sports programming in that time slot.
