A small minor newscast change… #77

WINK-TV 11 / Ft. Myers – Naples – Cape Coral (“WINK-TV”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: A small change to report from Southwest Florida and its strongest news station in that market.

Just recently, WINK 11/Cable 5 has expanded their weekend 11:00pm newscast to a full hour. WINK News at 11:00 competes against other 11:00pm newscasts in town on WBBH 20/Cable 2 (NBC) and WZVN 26/Cable 7 (ABC) and even though it does, WINK 11 is now home to the area’s ONLY hour-long weekend newscast at 11:00pm in the market.

The new hour-long format airs on both Saturdays and Sundays and comes after the already hour-long weekend newscasts that WINK 11 already airs at 10:00pm for its sister station (through an LMA), WXCW 46/Cable 6 (The CW) with WINK News at 10:00 on WXCW. That nightly newscast competes against WFTX 36/Cable 4 (FOX)’s hour-long nightly 10:00pm newscast.

Just other than that, that’s pretty much about it. There are no other major additions or expansions to report on at this time.
