WMGT goes to 7:00 p.m. on its Bounce subchannel.

WMGT-TV 41 / Macon (“41 NBC”)
WMGT-DT 41.3 / Macon (“Bounce Macon”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: I didn’t realize that this just happened, but probably because Central Georgia is a small market and I wouldn’t notice the changes. Anyways, WMGT now has a new newscast.

Just recently, WMGT 41 has added a half-hour weeknight local newscast at 7:00pm. But not for itself, but for its Bounce TV subchannel, Bounce Macon, which can be found on WMGT 41.3

41 NBC News at 7:00 on Bounce Macon is the area’s ONLY local newscast in that timeslot since WMAZ 13 (CBS) and WGXA 24 (FOX/ABC) air other programming in that timeslot.

The weeknight newscast airs on its Bounce TV subchannel as the main channel airs Judge Judy while The Hughleys airs at 7:30pm after the local news.

There’s not much details about this, other to say that just a new newscast is available in Central Georgia. Enjoy!

  1. If Macon is a small TV Market then I take it non of the Macon TV stations WMAZ, or WMGT will not be getting a 4:30am morning newscast. I wonder though if WMAZ will get a 5:30pm newscast?


    • The answer to that question… NO.

      13WMAZ airs “The Andy Griffith Show” at 5:30pm and is popular in that timeslot, among viewers in that market.

      So don’t expect 13WMAZ to add a 5:30pm newscast anytime soon. However, WFMY 2 used to have the same thing until they moved “Andy Griffith” to a double run at 3:00pm. They now air “2 Wants to Know” at 5:30pm.
