A small minor newscast change… #33

WNEP-TV 16 / Scranton – Wilkes-Barre (“WNEP-TV 16”)
WNEP-DT 16.2 / Scranton – Wilkes-Barre (“WNEP2”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: Another small change to report.

WNEP 16 has discontinued the Saturday 9:00 a.m. hour of Newswatch 16 This Morning for their digital subchannel, WNEP2 which carries Antenna TV.

The newscast, featuring Andy Palumbo and StormTracker 16 Weather with Meteorologist Noreen Clark, is now only on from 5:00-9:00 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays from 5:00-10:00 a.m., with the 7:00 a.m. hour simulcast on both WNEP 16 and WNEP2. The digital subchannel exclusively carries the last hour on Saturdays and the last 2 hours on Sundays.

This effectively means that WBRE 28 is the only home for local weekend morning news at 9:00 a.m. on Saturdays.

Other than that, no other major additions or expansions to report at this time.
