KNOE is gonna put a half-hour simulcast of its morning news to its ABC subchannel.

KNOE-TV 8 / Monroe, LA – El Dorado, AR (“KNOE 8”)
KNOE-DT 8.2 / Monroe, LA – El Dorado, AR (“KAQY ABC”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: Simulcasts are popping up all over the place and now, in North Louisiana and South Arkansas.

Starting Monday September 7th, 2015 (Labor Day), KNOE 8 will be adding a half-hour simulcast of its morning newscast, Good Morning Ark-La-Miss, at 6:30 a.m. on its ABC digital subchannel KAQY ABC. This will be the first time, on a subchannel with the now-fictional callsign, that it will have a local newscast. And the first time on “KAQY” in quite a long time, as their local news department (when it was on an over-the-air station) was shut down years ago because it was unable to compete against KNOE 8 and KTVE 10 (NBC).

This will be the only local newscast simulcast on both KNOE 8 and the ABC subchannel, as all of the other newscasts will remain exclusive to KNOE 8.

Its something, but I don’t think it will matter for those who live around the area.
