FIRST ON THE BLOG: We are heading to Central Washington for this story and with this addition, they actually didn’t do this until just recently.
Now, I don’t know how recently it has been, but KFFX 11 and KCYU 41 now broadcast a weekend edition of FOX – First at 10:00. The half-hour newscast targets Central Washington in both Yakima and the Tri-Cities and the newscast is produced by KNDO 23 and KNDU 25, out of Yakima, WA and Richland-Pasco-Kennewick, WA (Tri-Cities); respectively.
This creates the ONLY weekend newscast at 10:00 p.m. in the area, since KIMA 29/KEPR 19 doesn’t broadcast a weekend edition of their 10:00 p.m. news for KIMA 29.2/KEPR 19.2, CW 9 Yakima / Tri-Cities and as a result, the only primetime newscast in the area that’s on, 7-nights a week.
I say it’s about time, but glad that the stations and this area finally have something like this. Good for them.
