FIRST ON THE BLOG: Local news has returned to WZAW-LD, formerly WFXS.
Just recently, WSAW 7 has resumed a LIVE production of FOX 55 News at 9:00 to WZAW 55. The weeknight-ONLY half-hour production is now produced by WSAW 7, since the owners of Gray Television bought what was WFXS 55, shut it down and converted it to a digital low-power station.
The new broadcast features talent, including news, weather and sports, from WSAW 7. The newscast now competes against WAOW 9 (ABC)’s Newsline 9 at 9:00 on Central Wisconsin CW (WAOW 9.2/WYOW 34.2/WMOW 4) for local news in that timeslot in the market. We’re not sure if WSAW 7 will also return the hour-long 7:00 a.m. morning newscast that WZAW 55 once had before, but we’ll find out and see what happens. For now, its just weeknight-ONLY half-hour news at 9:00 p.m.
So for those of you who missed FOX 55 News at 9:00, you now have it once again, thanks to sister station WSAW 7.
