FIRST ON THE BLOG: A small change to report from Western North Dakota.
KXMB 12, KXMC 13, KXMA 2 and KXMD 11, all collectively known as KX Television, has expanded its weekday morning newscast.
The morning newscast, previously known as KX News Morning and started at 6:00am, is now known as KX News – Good Day Dakota and has expanded to another hour starting at 5:00am. In terms of competition, its the ONLY locally-based stations to start at 5:00am in the market as KFYR 5, KMOT 10, KUMV 8 and KQCD 7, collectively known as NBC North Dakota, starts their weekday morning newscast at 5:30am, currently known as NBC North Dakota News – Country Morning.
It also competes against Fargo-based news that’s seen on KBMY 17 / KMCY 14 (ABC) and airs WDAY 6 (Fargo) / WDAZ 8 (Grand Forks)’s weekday morning newscast, WDAY First News, which starts at 5:00am.
Stay tuned to the blog throughout the day… we have stories from Phoenix and from Springfield / Decatur / Champaign / Urbana that’s coming up.
