A small minor newscast change… #70

WAPT 16 / Jackson (“16 WAPT”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: A small change is coming up in Central Mississippi…

On Sunday April 24th, WAPT 16 will expand its Sunday night 10:00pm newscast to a full hour. The Sunday edition of 16 WAPT News at 10:00 will now compete in full against WLBT 3 (NBC)’s hour-long Sunday night 10:00pm newscast and WJTV 12 (CBS)’s half-hour Sunday night 10:00pm newscast.

The newscast is anchored by Scott Simmons with 16 WAPT Weather from AMS-CBM/Sealed Meteorologist Nathan Scott and 16 WAPT Sports with Josh Jackson.

But other than that, there are no other major additions or expansions to report on at this time. More Sunday night news in Central Mississippi though.

  1. WAPT later this year could get a midday or 4:00pm newscast since its a Hearst owned station and since Hearst stations have been expanding newscasts this year. So look forward for more possible news expansion on WAPT
