FIRST ON THE BLOG: Well… so much for that. An East Texas station discontinues a newscast.
KETK 56 is now, no longer airing its own weekend morning newscast. The previously hour-long newscast, which was known as KETK News Today at 8:00 a.m., has now been replaced by The Today Show on Saturdays and Paid Programming on Sundays. With this discontinuation, KLTV 7 / KTRE 9 now have the title as having the ONLY weekend morning newscast in the area at 8:00 a.m. with the hour-long Good Morning East Texas Weekend. KYTX 19 broadcasts a half-hour Sunday morning newscast at 7:30 a.m. with CBS 19 News Sunday Morning.
No word or no idea as to why KETK 56 has decided to discontinue their weekend morning newscast.
But maybe its because this market is getting smaller and smaller, maybe that’s according to KETK 56 itself. Nice going guys. No wonder why KLTV 7 is winning in the ratings.
