FIRST ON THE BLOG: For this report, we are in West Texas or a.k.a., the Permian Basin. I’m calling it West Texas. Anyways, one of Nexstar’s most-famous red-head step children stations has finally expanded one of their newscasts.
KMID 2 has expanded their weekday morning newscast to 2 hours and now starting at 5:00 a.m. with an extra half-hour show called Wake-Up West Texas. The show is anchored by Rebecca Jeffrey and Matt Farrell and the show does features the latest news and weather, as it leads into Good Morning West Texas, which will continue to start at 5:30 a.m.
This becomes the second station in the market to do so, after KWES 9’s Newswest 9 Sunrise, which also starts at 5:00 a.m. KOSA 7 will continue to start its CBS 7 Morning News at 5:30 a.m. and will become the ONLY 90-minute morning newscast in the area, at the moment, now that KWES 9 and NOW, KMID 2 broadcast their local morning newscasts for 2 hours, starting at 5:00 a.m.
It’s about time you did something about KMID 2, Nexstar. Now get this station to HD, please. It’s been long over-due.
