FIRST ON THE BLOG: Another small minor change to report…
… WABI 5 has moved its Sunday 6:30 p.m. newscast to 6:00 p.m. The newscast now competes against WLBZ 2’s NewsCenter at 6:00 for local weekend news in that timeslot, but is the ONLY locally-based weekend news at 6:00 in the area, since WLBZ 2’s weekend newscasts are produced from their sister station WCSH 6 in Portland.
With this small move, WABI 5 now has a set schedule of weekend newscasts on both weekend days at 6:00 and 11:00 p.m.
There is a major expansion to report tonight and it comes of a brand new news department on Lafayette, Louisiana. Thank Nexstar for this move. Details coming up shortly.
