FIRST ON THE BLOG: A small minor change from the D.C. area on Sunday mornings…
WUSA 9 has recently expanded its Sunday morning newscast by an extra half-hour. The Sunday morning edition of WUSA 9 News – Wake Up Washington is now aired from 7:00-9:00am, extended to the 8:30am half-hour that was previously aired by Capital Download, which has since been canceled.
In terms of competition, it now competes fully against WTTG 5 (FOX)’s Sunday morning newscast while it also competes against the 7:00am hour of WRC 4 (NBC)’s Sunday morning newscast. WJLA 7 (ABC) doesn’t do a weekend morning newscast at all.
Other than that, there are no other major additions or expansions to report on at this time.
