Another week coming up, another week of newscasts debuting. Here’s that list by day and in time zone order:
Monday April 6th, 2015
- 7:00-8:00 AM: 41 Action News Today at 7:00 a.m. on 38 The Spot
KMCI in Kansas City. It’s been more than a decade, but KMCI 38 will finally have a LIVE newscast and it consists of a 1-hour morning newscast from KSHB 41’s current morning news team. This will compete against WDAF 4 and KMBC 9 on KCWE 29.
- 6:00-7:00 PM: WCIA 3 News at 6:00
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!
