KEVU adds the 8:00 a.m. LIVE hour of “Good Day Oregon” from KPTV.

KEVU-CD 23 and KLSR-DT 34.2 / Eugene, OR (“KEVU-TV”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: KEVU is now known to airing local news from Portland’s KPTV. KEVU has recently just added another hour.

Just recently, KEVU 23 has added the LIVE (I repeat, LIVE) 8:00 a.m. hour of KPTV 12 / Portland’s Good Day Oregon. The newscast, which features Kimberly Maus and Pete Ferryman, is from the Portland area and not from Eugene. However, it is the ONLY option for local news in the 8:00 a.m. hour. The newscast is on from 8:00-9:00 a.m. on KEVU 23, which is also carried on a subchannel of sister station KLSR 34 (FOX).

Other newscasts that KEVU 23 carry include the following:

  • Weekdays:
    • 5:30-6:00 PM: The 5:00 O’Clock News on FOX 12 Oregon (tape-delayed from the first half-hour)
    • 11:00-11:35 PM: The 10:00 O’Clock News on FOX 12 Oregon (tape-delayed from the first half-hour)
  • Saturdays:
    • 6:00-6:30 AM: FOX 12 News – Good Day Oregon at 6:00 a.m. (LIVE – just the first half-hour)
    • 11:00-11:35 PM: The 10:00 O’Clock News on FOX 12 Oregon (tape-delayed from the first half-hour)
  • Sundays:
    • 7:00-7:30 AM: FOX 12 News – Good Day Oregon at 7:00 a.m. (LIVE – just the first half-hour)
    • 11:00-11:35 PM: The 10:00 O’Clock News on FOX 12 Oregon (tape-delayed from the first half-hour)

This is not the first time the station has carried a weekday hour of Good Day Oregon. Before, they carried a tape-delayed version of the 8:00 a.m. hour at 9:00 a.m. That was discontinued after a while. But now, the station has decided to carry Good Day Oregon again, this time LIVE at 8:00 a.m. The Real is now shown at 9:00 a.m.

It seems like KEVU is committed to local news. Just that its not from Eugene at all.
