A small minor newscast change… #68

WIBW-TV 13 / Topeka (“WIBW-TV 13”)
WIBW-DT 13.2 / Topeka (“My Network Topeka”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: A small change to report from Northeastern Kansas…

WIBW 13 has brought back its primetime newscast for its digital subchannel. 13 News at 9:00 airs on weeknights now for a half-hour on its second digital subchannel, My Network Topeka, on WIBW-DT 13.2, which is also home to Me-TV in the area. It doesn’t air on weekends though, unlike the first time WIBW 13 had a primetime newscast, which aired for 7 nights a week from 2006 until 2014.

This newscast now competes against the longer-established KSNT 27 (NBC)’s 9:00pm nightly newscast on their sister station, KTMJ-CD 43 (FOX) for local news in that timeslot in the market.

I would say there are no other major additions or expansions to report on at this time, however, there are some changes coming in Central Iowa to one TV station because of a recent forming of a duopoly and I will report on them in the next post…
