FIRST ON THE BLOG: Some few changes involving one more newscast in two stations in Southern Arizona (Tucson).
Since yesterday, Monday August 1st, KGUN 9 has expanded its weekday morning newscast, KGUN 9 News – Good Morning Tucson to 4:30am. It becomes the second station in the market to expand to 4:30am after KOLD 13 (CBS) has done so for quite some time now, a few years actually. This means that the program is now on from 4:30-7:00am.
However, the program remains as 4:30-7:00am because just recently, KGUN 9 has taken down the 7:00am hour that it aired for its sister station KWBA 58. It was known as KGUN 9 News – Good Morning Tucson Extra and it did compete against the first hour of KMSB 11 (FOX)’s 2-hour morning newscast, FOX 11 News Daybreak at 7:00am but now KMSB 11 holds reigns to having the ONLY 7:00-9:00am morning newscast in the area. That newscast is produced by their sister station KOLD 13 under a SSA.
Other than that, there are no other major additions or expansions to report on at this time.
