KOLO is ready for some more “News NOW” at 4:30 p.m.

KOLO-TV 8 / Reno (“KOLO 8”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: This is a story that you won’t hear anywhere else. Neither on TVSpy, TVNewsCheck, FTVLive or anywhere else… RIGHT NOW (12:55pm 4/7/2015). So remember where you heard of this newscast expansion… FIRST.

KOLO 8, will announce very soon and confirmed through me through e-mail by the station’s Vice President and General manager, Matt Eldredge, that KOLO 8 will add a half-hour weekday newscast at 4:30 p.m. starting April 20th. KOLO 8 News NOW at 4:30 p.m. will be anchored by Sarah Johns with KOLO 8 Weather NOW from Meteorologist Jeff Thompson.

According to TV listings, this will displace The Dr. Oz Show in that timeslot but will move to 2:00 p.m., to replace The Queen Latifah Show, which was canceled and ended its run late last month in March. Jeopardy! will fill the 4:00 p.m. half-hour before the new newscast.

With the new addition, KOLO 8 will now have the ONLY 4:30 p.m. local newscast in Reno and Western Nevada, as KTVN 2 and KRNV 4 will have other programming at 4:30 p.m., with KRNV 4 showing Judge Judy sandwiched between the 4:00 and 5:00 p.m. news and KTVN 2 showing Ellen at 4:00 p.m., before their 5:00 p.m. news.

More News NOW is coming to Western Nevada and Reno with KOLO 8 at 4:30 p.m., beginning April 20th. Congratulations KOLO 8! And remember where you heard this news… FIRST.
