So here we go again. Yes, we do have a list of newscasts debuting this weekend and one of them on this list is interesting. If your new to this blog, I do this by day and time order. If a tie, then market order will count too.
Saturday January 30th, 2016
- 7:00-8:00 AM: FOX 32 News – Good Day Chicago at 7:00 a.m.
- 8:00-9:00 AM: FOX 32 News – Good Day Chicago at 8:00 a.m.
WFLD in Chicago. With a lack of newscasts that they produce, its a surprise that WFLD 32 is actually going to be launching weekend morning news, starting tomorrow. Even a bigger surprise and possibly hard to believe… more hours of weekend morning news than that WGN 9 (CW) currently delivers.
Sunday January 31st, 2016
- 11:35 PM-12:00 AM: 11 News TONIGHT at 11:30
WBAL in Baltimore. Rare waters and rare territory since NBC O&O’s usually don’t do hour-long 11:00pm news because of control of Late Night programming from Mondays-Saturdays. However, WBAL 11 will expand to an hour on Sundays to provide local news till Midnight on Sundays to prepare for the week ahead.
A very short list this week, but there will be a bigger list next week, so stay tuned to The Changing Newscasts Blog. If any updates arise, we got Twitter: @ChangeNewsBlog and Facebook: “The Changing Newscasts Blog” as well as a Chat Room: tlk.io/changingnewscasts to keep you informed. Have a great weekend.
