FIRST ON THE BLOG: I did not know about this until now, but after all, I last checked on this market in July 2015. So I would not have known and my tips haven’t been coming in as of lately.
Anyways, WSMH 66, since September, has aired an hour-long 10:00 p.m. newscast on weeknights, expanding from the previous half-hour. FOX 66 News at 10:00 is now an hour-long on weeknights while remaining a half-hour on weekends. Dave Bondy and Sadie Hughes anchor the expanded newscast.
The newscast is provided by WEYI 25 (NBC) as it took over the newscast production from WNEM 5 (CBS) earlier this year in April. The expanded newscast competes against WNEM 5.2 (MyTV)’s hour-long 10:00 p.m. newscast (WNEM-TV 5 News at 10:00 on My 5) on weeknights for local news in that timeslot in the area. WNEM 5.2 continues to air an hour-long 10:00 p.m. newscast on weekends while WSMH 66’s 10:00 p.m. weekend newscast is only on for a half-hour.
At least now you know what’s been happening in Mid-Michigan TV news, even though I’m late in this news.
