FIRST ON THE BLOG: Baton Rouge just got even more weeknight news coverage, now that WGMB is airing another local newscast.
Since last Monday, April 12th, WGMB 44 has aired a weeknight half-hour local newscast at 5:30pm, produced by their sister station WVLA 33. FOX 44 News at 5:30 is aired on weeknights ONLY and is the ONLY local newscast on at that timeslot in the market.
This extra newscast now joins WGMB 44’s ONLY other newscast, a weeknight hour-long newscast at 9:00pm, as the ONLY newscasts that WVLA 33 produces for WGMB 44 and this encompasses a 90-minute news block between the two stations from 5:00-6:30pm as WVLA 33 airs two half-hour weeknight newscasts at 5:00 and 6:00pm.
But even with this addition, still no weekend newscasts for WGMB 44. At least for now.
A great addition for those who still want more local news in Baton Rouge and now this helps for them.
