FIRST ON THE BLOG: There’s something a little bit differently lately on WCBD 2’s digital subchannel. It’s always had a 10:00 p.m. airing of a local newscast from WCBD 2. The difference now… it’s LIVE and no longer repeated. We’ll explain…

Since yesterday, Monday December 7th, 2015, WCBD 2 has replaced the repeat of its 6:00 p.m. news at 10:00 p.m. on WCBD-DT 2.2, The Lowcountry CW 14, to a LIVE half-hour weeknight-ONLY newscast called News 2 at 10:00 on The Lowcountry CW 14. The new newscast competes against the first half-hour of Cunningham (a.k.a. Sinclair)’s WTAT 24 (FOX)’s hour-long FOX 24 News at 10:00, which is produced by Raycom-owned WCSC 5 (CBS). The newscast is anchored by Brendan Clark and Carolyn Murphy and StormTeam 2 Weather from AMS and NWA/Sealed Chief Meteorologist Rob Fowler.

There’s not much to report on this, other than saying that it’s nice to have an alternative to WTAT 24’s primetime newscast. Good job WCBD 2 for thinking about that.
