FIRST ON THE BLOG: More news has popped up in Southern Oregon, with a half-hour of more local news on KOBI and KDRV, each.
First off, KOBI 5 has recently launched a half-hour weeknight newscast at 7:00 p.m. under NBC 5 News at 7:00. This newscast is currently the ONLY newscast on at 7:00 p.m. in Southern Oregon. This also creates the area’s ONLY 90-minute local news block from 6:00-7:30 p.m. This is also simulcast on KOTI 2 in Klamath Falls, KOBI 5’s full-time satellite station.
And finally, KDRV 12 has expanded their weekend edition of NewsWatch 12 This Morning. Previously for a half-hour, the program is now on for a full hour at 8:00 a.m. and continues to serve as the ONLY local station with a weekend morning newscast. This newscast is also seen on KDKF 31 in Klamath Falls, KDRV 12’s full-time satellite station.
I have a friend who lives here in Southern Oregon, so this is good news for me, if I ever visit! Anyways, more news in Southern Oregon.
