KRNV discontinues its weekend 6:00 p.m. newscast.

KRNV-DT 4 / Reno (“Channel 4”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: Well… this news is hugely disappointing for those living in Western Nevada and the Reno market.

KRNV 4 has discontinued its weekend 6:00 p.m. half-hour newscast. The newscast, previously titled News 4 Nightly at 6:00, was the only newscast on at that time in Reno on weekends. But with this discontinuation, now nobody broadcasts a local weekend newscast in Reno at 6:00 p.m. as KTVN 2 and KOLO 8 air their respective national network newscasts, CBS Evening News and ABC World News TONIGHT, respectively.

And no, this newscast was not moved to their sister station KRXI 11. It has been canceled permanently. This leaves KRNV 4 with weekend half-hour newscasts at 5:00 and 11:00 p.m. And no, KRNV 4 has still not premiered a local 10:00 p.m. newscast for KRXI 11, yet. They still rather deliver a simulcast of The 10:00 O’Clock News on KTVU FOX 2 from KTVU in San Francisco. So, its just 5:00 and 11:00 p.m. on weekends.

We don’t know as to why KRNV 4 has discontinued its 6:00 p.m. weekend newscast. The newscast has been replaced by a paid program on Saturdays and The Insider on Sundays.

We don’t know why, but this is a bad loss for KRNV 4 and for the Reno market, in my opinion.

  1. I hope the Reno TV Market gets Saturday and Sunday Morning news. If A TV station in Reno were to get Saturday and Sunday Morning news I think it would be KOLO-TV 8 because they have been the TV station in Reno that has recently expanded local news with a 4:30 am morning newscast and a 4:30 pm newscast. I think KOLO-TV is the TV station in Reno that has the most hours of local news broadcast in the Reno Market.

  2. Well KRNV is runned by Sinclair and look what they did to KRNV sister station KSNV NBC 3 in Las Vegas when Sinclair started managing KSNV by cutting newscasts on that station. I think Sinclair buying KSNV NBC 3 and KRNV in Reno both stations that were previously owned by Inter Mountain West could have been the worst thing to happen in both the Las Vegas and Reno TV Markets.
