FIRST ON THE BLOG: The station in Columbus that is Here For You, has expanded its news product on Saturdays.
WCMH 4 has recently added a half-hour newscast on Saturdays at 7:00 p.m. Titled NBC 4 at 7:00, this creates the ONLY half-hour local newscast on Saturdays at 7:00 p.m. or on any night, for that matter, at 7:00 p.m. in Columbus. This was possibly done for WCMH 4 to air a local newscast, just in case NBC Sports programming preempted the station’s regular weekend newscast at 6:00 p.m. The newscast is anchored by Candice Lee with StormTeam 4 Weather from Meteorologist Ben Gelber.
Another Media General station, expanding their news department, this year. My oh my. I wonder what Media General will do with its other stations soon.
