We are heading into the final week of March and this Friday is April Fools’ Day, but this upcoming list is no joke. Here are the newscasts that will be debuting this week and listed by day and time order. If a tie, then by market size.
Monday March 28th, 2016
- 4:00-5:00 PM: News 4 at 4:00
WIVB in Buffalo. The station debuts its first-ever afternoon newscast at 4:00pm as well as the first one in the market. Because of it, it will be the ONLY ones on in its timeslot in the market.
- 7:00-7:30 PM: WAVY News 10 at 7:00 on FOX 43
WVBT in Hampton Roads. The station debuts another local newscast from their sister station WAVY 10 (NBC) and it also comes after WTKR 3 (CBS) launched a weeknight 7:00pm half-hour newscast on their sister station WGNT 27 (CW), months ago.
- 4:30-5:00 PM: KMIR News – First at 4:30
KMIR in Palm Springs. The station has been in the up rise in terms of ratings lately and tomorrow, it will start airing the Coachella Valley’s first-ever early afternoon newscast at 4:30pm, a timeslot in which either KESQ 42 (Cable 3; ABC) or KPSP 38 (Cable 2; CBS) aren’t on the air with local news yet.
So there you go for now. Of course, if there are any changes, social media is where you’ll stay updated on those changes. Have a great week and enjoy the rest of the month!
