WJKT adds a 7:00 a.m. morning newscast, provided by WATN/WLMT.

WJKT 16 / Jackson, TN (“FOX 16”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: I have reached the market of Western Tennessee. Why? Because as of recently, WJKT has added a newscast. One thing though… It’s focused on Memphis and not Western Tennessee.

Recently, WJKT 16 has added a simulcast of CW 30 News – Good Day at 7:00 a.m. from WLMT 30 in Memphis. That’s right. The weekday morning hour-long newscast, the ONLY ones in Western Tennessee btw, comes from sister stations WATN 24/WLMT 30 in Memphis. All three are owned by Nexstar Broadcast Group. WJKT 16 also simulcasts the hour-long nightly 9:00 p.m. news from WLMT 30 under CW 30 News at 9:00. WJKT 16 doesn’t have a news department as WBBJ 7 are the only ones to do so in the area.

At least it’s a plus side for viewers in Western Tennessee.
