FIRST ON THE BLOG: A small change to report from Central Mississippi.
Starting tonight, Monday January 25th, WDBD 40 will expand its primetime newscast at 9:00pm, FOX 40 News at 9:00, to a full hour on weeknights. The newscast is produced by their sister station (through SSA with Raycom) WLBT 3. The newscast will remain as a half-hour on weekends, but still remains as Central Mississippi’s ONLY local primetime newscast.
And soon, WDBD 40 will make history by becoming the first TV station in Mississippi to offer a weeknight primetime newscast for a full hour at 9:00pm, so yes… history will be made in the process while expanding the weeknight newscast. Melissa Faith Payne and Mike Sands will anchor the expanded weeknight newscast.
But other than this, there are no other major additions or expansions to report on at this time.
