Newscasts debuting this week… Edition #25.

KDBC-TV 4 / El Paso, TX – Las Cruces, NM (“CBS 4”)
KVCW 33 / Las Vegas (“The CW Las Vegas”)

We now have another week of newscasts that will debut. Here’s that list and again, by day and time order (in EDT):

Monday August 17th, 2015

  • 5:00-6:00 AM: CBS 4 News Daybreak at 5:00 a.m.
  • 6:00-7:00 AM: CBS 4 News Daybreak at 6:00 a.m.

KDBC in El Paso. The morning newscast returns to KDBC 4 after a long hiatus. As we FIRST told you on this blog, the newscast will compete against KVIA 7 (ABC), KTSM 9 (NBC) and even sister station KFOX 14 (FOX)’s morning newscast. The newscast is anchored by Jessie McDonough with 4WARN Weather from Meteorologist Joshua Zuber.

  • 7:00-8:00 AM: Wake Up with The CW at 7:00 a.m.
  • 8:00-9:00 AM: Wake Up with The CW at 8:00 a.m.

KVCW in Las Vegas. The newscast will be produced by KSNV 3, their sister station, but this particular newscast won’t feature Kim or Dana Wagner, who do Wake Up with The Wagners. Krystal Allen and Jeff Mahler will deliver the new 7:00-9:00 a.m. newscast which will compete against KVVU 5 (FOX) in that timeslot.

  • 12:00-12:30 PM: CBS 4 News at Noon

KDBC in El Paso. Jessie and Joshua will also be a part of this new half-hour broadcast, in which this market otherwise had a monopoly in local news at noon with just KVIA 7 (ABC)’s hour-long noon newscast.

  • 10:00-10:30 PM: The CW Las Vegas News at 10:00

KVCW in Las Vegas. Marie Mortera will anchor the new half-hour newscast, in which marks a return to the station for the first time since 2009, when it was last aired as an hour-long newscast and when it was canceled, the station was still KVBC 3, but has now since been changed to KSNV 3. This will compete with KVVU 5 (FOX)’s already-established hour-long newscast. This will be a weeknight newscast as well.

That’s it for now. If more, we will let you know on the blog. Have a great week.
