WMLW in Milwaukee. The station expands to a full hour with another half-hour at 9:30pm, 7 nights a week, which will now be able to compete in full with WITI 6 (FOX)’s hour-long 9:00pm newscast.

KXRM in Colorado Springs. Even though its weeknights only, it becomes the fourth station in the market to do so and makes both news-producing FOX stations in Colorado with weeknight 10:00pm newscasts.
That’s it for now. If any changes are made, I’ll update you on Twitter @ChangeNewsBlog or on Facebook: “The Changing Newscasts Blog”
Have a great week.
