FIRST ON THE BLOG: This is the year of the simulcasts. And with this one added that I’m about to report on, this one is no different.
WTVX 34 has started airing the weekday half-hour noon newscast from sister station WPEC 12, now that both stations are Sinclair-owned. CBS 12 News at Noon is on from 12:00-12:30 p.m. on WTVX 34, just like WPEC 12 and is anchored by long-time WPEC 12 veterans Suzanne Boyd and Eric Roby with CBS 12 StormTrac Weather from long-time TV area and long-time WPEC 12 AMS/Sealed Meteorologist Chris Farrell. Even though WPEC 12 and WTVX 34 are now simulcasting the noon newscast, it still competes against WPBF 25 (ABC) and long-time leader WPTV 5 (NBC) for local weekday news at noon. Other than this simulcast, the ONLY other local newscast on WTVX 34 is the weekday half-hour newscast at 10:00 p.m. that’s also produced by WPEC 12 and known as CBS 12 News at 10:00 on CW 34.
Enjoy the simulcast, West Palm Beach. More news can mean good news.
