FIRST ON THE BLOG: If you think KRGV is done expanding their newscasts… you are wrong. They are getting ready to expand their Sunday late-night newscast.

Starting Sunday September 20th, 2015, KRGV 5 will expand its Sunday 10:00 p.m. newscast to an hour. Channel 5 News at 10:00 will be the area’s ONLY hour-long 10:00 p.m. newscast on Sunday nights and will be the area’s ONLY home for an hour-long 10:00 p.m. newscast from Sundays-Fridays in the Rio Grande Valley.

The current weekend evening news team at KRGV 5 is expected to anchor the new half-hour on Sunday nights.

There’s not much to say about this new expansion, but KRGV 5 is on a roll. Already expanded their 4:00 p.m. newscast to an hour today and now, expanding their Sunday 10:00 p.m. news to an hour. Already broadcast the most hours of local news in the RGV, KRGV 5 will soon be delivering even more.

Enjoy, RGV.

  1. Why have a lot of TV stations been expanding their late Sunday newscasts to an hour? I wonder what the purpose of it is? I thought Sunday is a slow news day with a skelton crew.

    • Because people work the next day. On Sundays, there’s a bigger audience, due to more people sleeping and getting ready to work on Sundays than on Saturdays.

      After all, KQDS and KVRR just expanded their Sunday 9pm newscast to an hour, but keep it a half-hour on Saturdays.

      Same can be said for KFOX and WALA.
