KWBQ’s first-ever newscast… A simulcast of KRQE’s morning news.

KWBQ 19 / Santa Fe – Albuquerque and KRWB-TV 21 / Roswell, NM (BOTH branded as “New Mexico’s CW”)
KRQE 13 / Albuquerque – Santa Fe; KBIM 10 / Roswell, NM and KREZ-TV 6 / Durango, CO – Farmington, NM (All three branded as “KRQE News 13”)
KASA-TV 2 / Santa Fe – Albuquerque (“2 KASA FOX”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: KRQE’s morning newscast continues to grow in stations.

KRQE 13 is now simulcasting the 7:00-9:00 a.m. portion that it offers on its sister station KASA 2, to their SSA sister station KWBQ 19. KRQE News 13 This Morning is now on from 4:30-7:00 a.m. on KRQE 13 and KASA 2 and from 7:00-9:00 a.m. on KASA 2 and KWBQ 19. This is KWBQ 19’s first-ever newscast in any way shape or form and the newscast is anchored by Crystal Gutierrez and Adam Atchison. Technically, it’s a simulcast, even though the two stations are owned by different companies and are actually, “rivals,” though not 100% actual rivals since KWBQ 19 is operated under a SSA with KRQE 13.

So if you’re looking for more morning news in New Mexico, don’t worry about it. It’s the same, but under two different channels.

One thought on “KWBQ’s first-ever newscast… A simulcast of KRQE’s morning news.

  1. Before KRQE started morning news at 7:00am and 8:00am on KASA my city of Albuquerque was one of the very few large TV Markets in the Grand United States of America that did not have local morning news at 7:00am or 8:00am Before KASA got local morning news at 7:00am and 8:00am you would have to relie on the local morning news cut ins on the Today Show, GMA, or CBS This Morning to get local news past 7:00am. Me being a lifelong ABQ resident The Albuquerque Media Market was a late comer to offering local news at 7:00am and 8:00am. Before KASA-TV got morning news. KASA-TV was also one of the very few FOX stations in the top 50 TV Markets to not have morning news. I think WPGH-TV 53 in Pittsburgh is the only FOX station in a large TV Market or the top 50 TV Markets not to have morning news at 7:00am or 8:00am. Before KASA started morning news The Daily Buzz Program the national morning show that was on KWBQ-TV before 13 News tooks its place did offer a news ticker that scrolled across the screen during The Daily Buss had some local headlines. The local headlines on the news-ticker on the Daily Buzz on CW 19 were provided by 770 KOB News radio and then by KRQE when KRQE entered the SSA with KWBQ. The Daily Buzz also provided local weather inserts first by the Daily Buzz then by KRQE Weather team. The only real sources for local news past 7:00am in the ABQ TV Market before KRQE started news on KASA were from the news scroll on the Daily Buzz on this channel or from the local cut ins on the Today Show, GMA, and CBS This Morning. Before KRQE started morning newz on KASA at 7:00 am and 8:00 am I use to be very frustrated that Albuquerque was one of the few large TV Markets in the Grand United States of America that did not offer local morning news past 7:00 am. I wake up around 7:30am and by that time I already would have missed the news before KASA started 7:00 and 8:00am news. So the ABQ TV Market is making progress when it comes to offering local morning news at 7:00am and 8:00am
