FIRST ON THE BLOG: Another small minor change to report and this time in West Texas in the San Angelo area.
KIDY 6, recently brought by Gannett (soon to be TEGNA) and just adopted the Gannett graphics look, has moved its late night weeknight newscast from 9:30 to 10:00 p.m. and adopting the KIDY FOX News First at 10:00 name. The newscast, anchored by Bob Brackeen and Molly Garrity with Weather from Meteorologist Barrett Phillips and Sports with Manny Diaz, is no longer in the primetime hour and is considered a late-night traditional timeslot newscast, because it now competes against KSAN 3, KLST 8 and KTXE-LP 38 (which repeats KTXS 12 out of Abilene – Sweetwater, TX) for local news in that timeslot. And KIDY 6 can’t produce a 9:00 p.m. newscast because KIDY 6’s and sister station KXVA 15’s newscasts are produced out of KXVA 15’s studios in Abilene and only have 1 news team assembled for both stations.
Other than that, no other major additions or expansions to report at this time.
