KXRM now has weekend morning news for the first time ever.

KXRM-TV 21 / Colorado Springs – Pueblo (“FOX 21”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: If you’re looking for a fresh, alternative weekend morning newscast in Southern Colorado, then look no further than KXRM. They got one now.

Since yesterday, Saturday July 9th, KXRM 21 has added and now airs a weekend morning newscast. The newscast airs from 6:00-7:00am and is branded as the FOX 21 Morning News at 6:00 a.m., same as the weekday counterparts.

This newscast competes against KRDO 13 (ABC)’s already-established weekend morning newscast at 6:00am with NewsChannel 13’s Good Morning Colorado at 6:00 a.m. This is the first time since the news operation launched in 2006 that KXRM 21 has ventured into a new area for newscasts… weekend mornings. The only other weekend newscast they got now is their half-hour weekend newscast at 9:00pm.

I don’t know as to who anchors the news or delivers the weather on the new broadcast.

But good for KXRM 21 as they try out something new in a new time area for a young news department (10 years compared to decades in other stations). I’d say good luck to them on this.
