FIRST ON THE BLOG: A small minor change took place in Western New York (Buffalo) and it involves weekend mornings.
WIVB 4 has moved its Wake-Up! show on weekends from its previous 7:00-9:00 a.m. timeslot to now its current 6:00-8:00 a.m. timeslot. This now leaves Buffalo without an 8:00 a.m. morning newscast on weekends, as WIVB 4 previously delivered.
However, it now competes against the first hour of WGRZ 2 (NBC)’s Channel 2 News Daybreak on Saturdays while the second hour is all by themselves. On Sundays, WIVB 4 starts a half-hour earlier (6:00 a.m.) than WGRZ 2’s morning newscast (6:30 a.m.) while both compete at 7:00 a.m. WKBW 7 (ABC) doesn’t air a weekend morning newscast at all.
But other than that, there are no other major additions or expansions to report at this time.
