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.
