WPEC now simulcasts the noon newscast with WTVX.

WPEC 12 / West Palm Beach – Boca Raton – Ft. Pierce (“CBS 12”)
WTVX 34 / Ft. Pierce – West Palm Beach – Boca Raton (“CW 34”)

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.

  1. I am surprised the West Palm Beach is a separate TV Market from Miami since West Palm Beach is close to Miami. I wonder why West Palm Beach is a separate TV Market from Miami since Miami is so close? West Palm Beach having its own TV Market from Miami being so close would be like if Orange County had its own TV Market being about the same distance from LAX or like Newark, New Jersey having its own TV Market separate from NYC or like Fort Worth having its own TV market separate from Dallas Since all places are about the same distance as it is from Miami to WPB.

    • You need WPB stations because the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale market is not gonna cover other WPB areas in the market, including Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River counties, etc. WPB stations are needed to cover the Treasure Coast of Florida and besides, Miami’s stations aren’t strong enough to reach the Treasure Coast areas, unlike the WPB stations in which they do.

    • Why would you even say that Jeremy? Most of the counties are too far away from Miami. They don’t want or need Miami news. Your ideas are always way too wild for real life…

      • It was just a though so sue me. Yeah the people in Orange County or New Jersey probably don’t want or need LA or New York City News. What ideas are you talking about being too wild for real life? I will tell you what ideas are too wild for real life too much national and international news on local newscasts. Newscasts that have infotainment as top news such as celebrities or sports athletes being important news instead of news about real issues that face our country such as poverty, polarization, race, war, billionaires buying the political system, corruption, etc. Infotainment passed on as journalism and opinionated news are way too wild for real life.
