FIRST ON THE BLOG: A small change to report from Northwest Arkansas.
Just recently, KFSM 5 has expanded their Sunday morning newscast to 5:00 a.m., which means that 5 News This Morning is now on Sundays from 5:00-8:00 a.m., matching its existing Saturday start time of 5:00 a.m. as well.
With this hour-long addition, KFSM 5 is now home to the ONLY local station in the area that delivers a 5:00 a.m. morning newscast on weekends. KHBS 40/KHOG 29 (ABC/CW) starts at 6:00 a.m. while KNWA 51 (NBC) doesn’t offer a weekend morning newscast at all.
Other than this, there are no other major additions or expansions to report at this time.
