Newscasts debuting this week… Edition #38.

We have another jam packed week of newscasts that’ll be debuting this week. Here’s that list by day and time order. What’s funny about this week’s list is that all stations are on the east coast, which makes it easier for me to show you this list:

Monday January 11th, 2016

  • 4:30-5:00 AM: 9 On Your Side – The Morning Edition at 4:30 a.m.

WNCT in Greenville, NC. The newscast expands to 4:30am and becomes the second station in the market to do so, after WITN 7 (NBC). This comes after the station recently expanded its weekend morning newscast to two hours on Saturdays.

  • 9:00-10:00 AM: CBS 12 News This Morning at 9:00 a.m.

WPEC in West Palm Beach. The second station in the market to expand to the 9:00am hour after WPBF 25 (ABC) did so last year. Suzanne Boyd and Eric Roby will anchor this hour, as well as their 4:30-7:00am and noon newscasts.

  • 4:30-5:00 PM: NewsCenter 5 at 4:30
  • 7:00-7:30 PM: NewsCenter 5 at 7:00

WCVB in Boston. Ed Harding will solo anchor the 4:30pm newscast with Heather Unruh joining Ed at 7:00pm. This all comes after Meredith gets bumped down to overnights (will be canceled soon) and Inside Edition will now go on before the 4:30pm news with Chronicle going on after the 7:00pm news.

  • 5:30-6:00 PM: ABC 7 News at 5:30

WZVN in Ft. Myers. The station canceled its 5:00 and 5:30pm newscasts last year, but its bringing back one of them starting tomorrow with Extra remaining in its place at 5:00pm.

  • 6:00-6:30 PM: Action News Jax at 6:00 on FOX 30
  • 6:30-7:00 PM: Action News Jax at 6:30 on FOX 30

WFOX in Jacksonville. The station will simulcast the 6:00pm news with their sister station, WJAX 47 with the 6:30pm news being a brand new newscast and compete against WJXT 4 (Ind) for local news in that timeslot in the area.

  • 6:30-7:00 PM: PIX 11 News at 6:30

WPIX in New York City. NYC’s ONLY local newscast at 6:30pm with two NYC TV legends, Brenda Blackmon and Kaity Tong.

  • 10:00-10:30 PM: WLWT News 5 at 10:00 on Me-TV Cincinnati

WLWT in Cincinnati. The station’s second digital subchannel will be home to the nightly newscast, the third in the market after WKRC 12’s 10:00pm news on WSTR 64 and the established WXIX 19’s 10:00pm news.

  • 11:00-11:30 PM: WDRB News at 11:00

WDRB in Louisville. The station is on an expanding machine. Now, add a half-hour weeknight 11:00pm newscast to that mix.

This is a big month ahead of us. If there are any changes, we will surely let you know on Twitter: @ChangeNewsBlog or on Facebook: The Changing Newscasts Blog. Have a great week!
