FIRST ON THE BLOG: Moves are happening across Western Colorado and KFQX/KREX are not a part of it. It all involves the Gray Television duopoly of KJCT, the ABC/CW affiliates and KKCO, the NBC/Me-TV affiliates for Western Colorado. Here’s the story:
KJCT 8 has discontinued its nightly 5:00 and weeknight 6:00 p.m. newscasts, in favor of a half-hour nightly newscast at 5:30 p.m. The 5:00 p.m. newscast has been replaced by ABC World News TONIGHT and the 6:00 p.m. newscast replaced by The Big Bang Theory.
Meanwhile, KKCO 11 has discontinued its nightly 5:30 p.m. newscast in favor of nightly 5:00 and weeknight 6:00 p.m. newscasts. KKCO 11 now airs NBC Nightly News at 5:30 p.m. and has moved its weeknight 6:00 p.m. newscast from Me-TV Western Colorado (KKCO-DT 11.2) to the main KKCO 11 channel.
In other words, a role reversal, if you wanna call it, of moves made in Western Colorado. And that’s the story. Enjoy, Western Colorado.
