FIRST ON THE BLOG: A small change for weekday mornings from Western Tennessee.
WBBJ 7 has quietly and just recently expanded its weekday morning newscast, 7 Eyewitness News – Good Morning West Tennessee by a half-hour earlier to 5:00am. Because WBBJ 7 is the ONLY locally-produced news department in West Tennessee, its home to the ONLY locally-produced morning newscast in the market. WJKT 16 (FOX) airs a weekday morning newscast from 7:00-8:00am in a simulcast with WLMT 30 (CW/Me-TV and MyTV) out of Memphis, with those newscasts focusing more on Memphis than on Jackson, but still provides news to WJKT 16, nonetheless.
7 Eyewitness News – Good Morning West Tennessee is now a 2-hour morning program that airs weekdays from 5:00-7:00am with WBBJ 7’s CBS channel on WBBJ 7.3, joining the simulcast at 5:30am and airing the newscast from 5:30-7:00am.
But other than this, there are no other major additions or expansions to report on at this time.
