FIRST ON THE BLOG: Another small change to report and this time from The Big Apple, New York City.
Either since Today or just recently, WPIX 11 has expanded their Sunday 5:00 p.m. newscast to an hour. PIX 11 News at 5:00 on Sundays is now an hour-long, matching its hour-long time frame for the Saturday 5:00 p.m. newscast and it now fully competes against WABC 7 (ABC)’s Channel 7 Eyewitness News at 5:00 for local news in that timeslot in the area. The newscast is anchored by WPIX 11 station veteran and long-time NYC TV anchor, Kaity Tong.
Celebrity Taste Makers, hosted by WPIX 11’s very own Lisa Mateo, has moved to Saturdays at 6:00 p.m. after the station’s very own Saturday 5:00 p.m. newscast.
Other than this, there are no other major additions or expansions to report at this time.
