Minor additions and expansions on KXAS, KTVT and KDAF.

KXAS-TV 5 / Ft. Worth – Dallas (“NBC 5”)
KTVT 11 / Ft. Worth – Dallas (“CBS 11”)
KDAF 33 / Dallas – Ft. Worth (“CW 33”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: There have been some minor changes, involving three DFW stations and I have no idea about it until just recently.

First off, KXAS 5 has expanded its Sunday night 10:00pm newscast to a full hour. NBC 5 News at 10:00 now airs from 10:00-11:00pm on Sundays and competes fully with KTVT 11 (CBS) for the full hour on Sundays in the market. It also competes with half-hour WFAA 8 (ABC)’s 10:00pm newscast on Sundays. The newscast is anchored by Cory Smith and Amanda Guerra with Weather from AMS-CBM/Sealed Meteorologist Remeisha Shade and Sports from Pat Doney.

Next is KTVT 11. They have just expanded their Saturday night 10:00pm newscast to a full hour as well. CBS 11 News at 10:00 is now on for a full hour on both Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00-11:00pm and is the DFW Metroplex’s ONLY home of hour-long weekend late night newscasts at 10:00pm.

And finally, KDAF 33. The small news operation that only carries EyeOpener and NewsFix has expanded its Saturday morning newscast. Yep, you heard that right. EyeOpener DFW on Saturdays has been extended by an hour and is now seen on Saturday mornings from 5:00-7:00am. In terms of competition, its home to the ONLY local morning news on Saturdays at 5:00am in the market as KXAS 5 starts at 6:00am.

A lot of changes within the DFW market and its these small changes that the DFW Metroplex viewers should enjoy.

  1. When the Daily Buzz was around which was a program similar to Eye Opener I was hoping the DBZ would expand weekend mornings or that the DBZ would have a weekend edition. but unfortunately the DBZ was cancelled. The DBZ had a good run for 12.5 years 2002-2015 with that kind of a successful run there would be a reason to expand to weekends.


  2. I’m thinking the EyeOpener news program is currently carried on Tribune stations (MyNet, CW, Independent), except for WPIX, KTLA, and WGN. A smart idea, IMO, would be for Tribune to syndicate the show to additional stations… including CW Plus affiliates in smaller markets, and other stations that used to carry The Daily Buzz… in hopes of filling the void that DBZ left behind.
