WCIA in Champaign. This newscast goes from a half-hour to an hour and becomes the ONLY local newscast at both 6:00 AND 6:30 p.m., as well as the ONLY local newscast at 7:00 p.m. for their sister station WCIX 49.

Tuesday April 7th, 2015

  • 9:00-10:00 PM: FOX Champaign News at 9:00

WCCU in Champaign. This newscast replaces the market-wide newscast that it has been on for years. WRSP will continue to air its own Springfield-based newscast and this will be the ONLY newscast, produced by WICD 15 as their other newscasts productions have been shut-down for good, this past Friday. Also, they are launching on Tuesday and not on Monday, due to Election Day and local election results.

There’s the list and have a great week!
