A few changes in the Detroit market…

WDIV-TV 4 / Detroit (“Local 4”)
WXYZ-TV 7 / Detroit (“Channel 7”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: Yes, I took forever to report on this, but wanted to make sure that it was official. Now I know it is.

First off, WDIV 4 has taken off a half-hour of the Sunday 11:00 p.m. newscast from what was a previous hour. The 11:30 p.m. is now overtaken once again by WDIV 4’s Sports FINAL Edition, where it was previously held until WDIV 4 expanded the 11:00 p.m. newscast to an hour for a couple of months. That’s no longer the case now. Another change in the market…

… WXYZ 7 has rescheduled its Sunday morning news lineup temporary for Detroit Lions specials during Sunday game days. Apparently, now that the NFL season is over, WXYZ 7 will be keeping the changes as permanent. WXYZ 7 has moved 7 Sports Cave back to 11:00 a.m. and kept as a half-hour program. But the most noticeable change is 7 Action News This Morning moving from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m., after WXYZ 7’s Sunday public affairs program Spotlight in the News. In other words, 7 Action News This Morning is on Sundays from 6:00-7:00, 8:00-9:00 and 10:30-11:00 a.m.

I wanted to make sure it was official. Now that it is, I can report on it. And now I have. You’re now caught up to date.


One thought on “A few changes in the Detroit market…

  1. Just want to leave comments for news station. While I watch often the weather for channel wxyz., it appears the all the news stations focus most of the news worthy events for the city of Detroit ,. other areas receive comments dependent upon how close in proximity they are to Detroit . I am among a number of viewers who would like to hear some word for the cities not Detroit that don’t include how cold or how much snow, or crime stories. Viewers of a wiser age still believe they’re vital human beings and would like to see age diversity fairly represented, onscreen. In recent years wxyz has added new faces that may come with experience but have yet to include physically wiser in appearance on their screen.As a day shift viewer I prefer my weather information relayed in a brief, accurate and clearly defined, rather than hints or vague words intended to lengthen the viewing time of the viewer. Many don’t or can’t devote long periods of time to get the latest information with vague descriptions, example, if it snow flurries–say it ! if its minor accumulations–SAY IT !!!!
