We are heading into Late April and more newscasts, continue to be added. Here is this week’s list and in time order.
Monday April 20th, 2015
- 4:30-5:00 AM: News 13 This Morning at 4:30 a.m.
WBTW in Myrtle Beach-Florence. The station will become the first and ONLY station in the market to start at 4:30 a.m. The station is also making another addition that day. Details later in this post.
- 4:00-4:30 AM: KTVU Mornings on 2 at 4:00 a.m.
KTVU in San Francisco. This becomes just the third FOX O&O station to air local morning news in that timeslot and will compete against KRON 4 in that timeslot.
- 9:00-10:00 AM: News 13 NOW at 9:00 a.m.
WBTW in Myrtle Beach-Florence. Again, the first and ONLY morning newscast at 9:00 a.m. in the market.
- 5:00-6:00 PM: ABC News 4 at 5:00
WCIV in Charleston. The first time WCIV 4 will air local news at 5:00 p.m. since 2002 when it was canceled. The station will debut a new look, because of the new newscast. And a new logo will be introduced as well.
- 6:00-6:30 PM: PIX 11 News at 6:00
WPIX in New York City. The station will air a 6:00 p.m. newscast to compete against the BIG leagues on the other four local stations. And no, it’s not an hour-long newscast at 6:00 p.m. as its only a half-hour newscast.
- 3:00-4:00 PM: The Refresh – Las Vegas
KSNV in Las Vegas. The show, which originally came from KUTV 2 in Salt Lake City, makes its first expansion to KSNV 3. The newscast replaces the traditional newscasts that it originally held in that timeslot.
- 4:30-5:00 PM: KOLO 8 News NOW at 4:30
KOLO in Reno. The station will become the ONLY station in the market with a 90-minute news block from 4:30-6:00 p.m. and home to the ONLY local newscast at 4:30 p.m., since KTVN 2 starts at 5:00 and KRNV 4’s 4:00 p.m. newscast is only a half-hour.
That’s the additions for this week. Have a great week, everybody!
