WTOC is about to have a much bigger “Daybreak,” but this time, on its digital subchannel.

WTOC-TV 11 / Savannah, GA – Hilton Head, SC (“WTOC 11”)
WTOC-DT 11.2 / Savannah, GA – Hilton Head, SC (“Bounce Savannah”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: As I’ve mentioned before about WTOC, the station is known as The Southeast News Leader, even though the station now goes by LIVE. Local. NOW.

Anyways, their weekday morning newscast, THE News at Daybreak, is #1. So much so, that it’s ready to expand once again, but this time, it won’t be on WTOC’s main channel…

Starting tomorrow, Monday March 7th, WTOC 11 will expand its weekday morning newscast to the 8:00am hour, but it will be on their second digital subchannel, currently known as Bounce Savannah, the African American-targeted entertainment network. THE News at Daybreak at 8:00am on Bounce Savannah will be anchored by WTOC 11 veteran Cyreia Sandlin with WTOC 11 First Alert Weather from Meteorologist Dave Turley and WTOC 11 First Alert Traffic with Jamie Ertle.

This will become the area’s first-ever and ONLY local morning newscast at 8:00am in the market as WSAV 3 (NBC) and WJCL 22 (ABC) air their respective network morning shows with WTGS 28 (FOX) airing syndicated programming. With this new hour, WTOC 11 will now be home to Savannah’s ONLY two hours of LIVE and local morning news after 7:00am with the 7:00am hour on WTOC 11 and the 8:00am hour on Bounce Savannah and now making the entire weekday morning newscast, available from 4:30-9:00am.

And for those who live in the area, but don’t know where to find Bounce Savannah, then here’s where they can find it:

  • Antenna/Over-the-Air
    • Channel 11.2
  • Comcast Cable
    • Channel 233
  • Hargray Cable
    • Channel 111

This is pretty and very exciting news for all of those who live in the Georgia Coastal Empire and South Carolina Lowcountry. I love this news.
